Scanner Chatter: Helio Castroneves ready to win again 

By Doug "Fireball" Turnbull

Three-time Indianapolis 500 champ Helio Castroneves swung by WSB Thursday to promote this weekend’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama (Sunday, 3:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN) at Barber Motorsports Park outside of Birmingham, Alabama.

The jovial “Dancing With the Stars” victor and 23-time IndyCar race-winner opens up about his almost-three-year winless streak and chasing his elusive first championship. The 41-year-old also shares his ties to Atlanta and how long he figures he can keep wheeling the No. 3 Team Penske Chevy.

Castroneves also discusses the Verizon IndyCar Series’ short schedule and dual-race weekends and if NASCAR should go that direction.

Listen here.
