Helio Stunned, Honored by Enshrinement in Team Penske Hall of Fame

When Helio Castroneves was asked to participate in a recent video conference with Team Penske, he thought they might wish him goodbye and give him a virtual sendoff following an outstanding 21-year career with the team. Throughout Team Penske’s incredible history, there have been many great drivers that have competed for the team, beginning with Mark Donohue in the 1960s and early 1970s. I was expected to deliver, and Team Penske gave me the tools that I needed to win. Castroneves had a dramatic impact on INDYCAR during his Team Penske tenure. Ironically, Castroneves’ career at Team Penske nearly didn’t happen. “The thing about Team Penske, they put everybody in position to win the big races like the Indianapolis 500. “I can’t believe it, 21 years, but I’m also ready for a new team and I’m ready to see what I can do there. Castroneves has earned his place in the Team Penske Hall of Fame, but at 45 he isn’t finished in INDYCAR.
