  • Helio's rings

    From Saturday's Indianapolis Star via AP.

    Castroneves even cracks jokes about the situation when he is asked about his Indy 500 ring.

    "This is my 2001 ring," he said. "I gave the 2002 (ring) to my father. And I gave the 2003 (ring) to my teammate."

      This is funny but I do have a question. What on Earth was Roger Penske doing telling Helio to "just be patient" during the last laps of the 2003 500? Did anyone else hear that on the broadcast? Or was he talking to Gil?

        I believe Roger runs the "A" team with Gil and Cindric runs the "B" team with Helio.

        What irks me (maybe its too soon for the truth), DW was a 16-oval WIN specialist, yet the vast majority those boohooing for him, hardcarders & fans, alike are the same ones trying to kill anything with more than 9 deg banking & 4 corners, where Dan ultimately made his home...

          That is correct. Not sure about the "A" & "B" team thing.

            Maybe Penske was trying to ensure a 1-2 instead of risking seeing both his cars in the wall?

              Penske runs Gil's team, while Cindric runs Helio's team. No team orders there.

                Maybe the Captain was on the Grassy Knoll!

                  Thanks. It must have been that Roger was talking to Gil while the camera was on Helio's car, and it made me think that Roger was talking to Helio. If anyone has a tape, I'd appreciate an exact answer on what was going on.

                    Re: Roger Running Gil's team, and Tim running Helio's team. RP was not present at the Winner's photo shoot in 2001 and 2002 - he was in 2003.
