Helio wins Dancing With the Stars

Yes, I know that some of you will say that this has nothing to do with racing, but Helio Castroneves winning the immensely popular ballroom dancing "reality show" can be a tremendous boost for the sport. It's great to see an IndyCar driver celebrated by a mainstream audience, and in large part it was his personality that captivated them. It gets an IndyCar star noticed by millions of people who wouldn't normally watch a race, and I'm sure that at least a few will tune in next year to watch him just because of it.

Anything that gets a driver positive mainstream press is good, in my book. Well done, Helio!

So with one driver succeeding in the dance off, who will go for back to back wins. Better give the girls a chance, Danica, Mika or Sarah ?
