Castroneves Statement on IndyCar Fine

September 27, 2011

Helio Castroneves issued the following statement after Tuesday's announcement by INDYCAR that he will be fined for his post-race comments after the recent race at Motegi, Japan.

"I am aware of the fine issued by INDYCAR for my comments after the race in Japan. At this point, I think it's best to just put this situation behind me and move forward. We have a big race this weekend and my focus now is getting back on track and behind the wheel of the No. 3 Team Penske car as we try to defend our win from last season at Kentucky Speedway. It's important for us to end the season on a positive note so we will be doing our best to get back to Victory Lane this weekend and at the finale in Las Vegas."
