September 23, 2011

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (September 23, 2011) - Team Penske driver Helio Castroneves will be a featured guest on tonight's episode of the "Nancy Grace Show" on CNN's HLN network (8 p.m. ET).

Castroneves, the three-time Indianapolis 500 champion and driver of the No. 3 Team Penske car in the IZOD IndyCar Series, will be part of a panel of former and current "Dancing with the Stars (DWTS)" contestants profiled on tonight's episode. Castroneves won the coveted "Mirror Ball" trophy as champion of the fifth season of DWTS in 2007.

Grace, the acclaimed talk show host, is currently competing on the new season of DWTS and she dedicated tonight's show to the popular ABC-TV series, talking with past champions of the show as well as current participants.

"It was a great opportunity to be a guest on the ‘Nancy Grace Show,'" said Castroneves. "I have watched her show many times in the past and I was honored that they asked me to come on and talk about my experience on ‘Dancing with the Stars.' I think Nancy has done a great job so far on the dance floor and hopefully she can keep it going."

Castroneves and Team Penske return to action next weekend at the Kentucky Indy 300 at Kentucky Speedway (Sunday, Oct. 2 at 2 p.m. ET on VERSUS).
