Player Appearance: Meet Helio Castroneves

At 35, three-time Indy 500 champion and Season 5 Dancing With The Stars winner Helio Castroneves has already had a pretty full dance card.

Castroneves shares the remarkable story of his life in auto racing, DWTS, his tax evasion trial, and being a new father in his book “Victory Road, the Ride of My Life.”

The South Florida resident will be making appearances locally on Saturday and Wednesday to promote the book. On Saturday from noon to 2 p.m., he’ll be at Costco North Miami, 14585 Biscayne Blvd. On Wednesday at 8 p.m., he'll be at Books and Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables.

Here’s how Castroneves describes his book on his website: “This is a book about a DREAM. This is a story of UPS AND DOWNS. I tell of my early racing days, my time on Dancing with the Stars, my most thrilling wins and worst defeats, the trial, and off course, the birth of my daughter.”

Castroneves is scheduled to compete in the IndyCar Series championship on Oct. 2 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
