On Wednesday, October 4th, it was revealed that three-time Indianapolis 500 champion, Helio Castroneves, will be racing in his last IndyCar race in the 2018 Indy 500. However, Castroneves will not be stepping away from the wheel forever; he will be racing in the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCars Championship Series. This is a sports car racing series that takes place in the U.S. and Canada. Castroneves was an extremely successful IndyCar driver as he was only one of nine drivers to win the Indy 500 three times; however, he was never able to ever be crowned the season champion.  “I’ve been fortunate to achieve a lot of my personal goals with Team Penske over the years,” said Castroneves in a statement. Other than his fame on the track, Castroneves won the 5th season of “Dancing With the Stars” alongside actress and singer Julianne Hough.

The 2018 Indy 500 will take place on May 28th while the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Series kicks off on January 5th.
