Fourth in Fort Worth

Helio Castroneves dominated for more than the last half of the Firestone 550K and won tonight in Cowtown. Fellow Brazilian Tony Kanaan, who actually owns cattle in Texas, finished third. This was a very interesting race, as early green-flag runs matched up with fuel/tire windows and were long enough to let several drivers get lapped. The race went green for more than the last 100 laps, and Helio pulled away for the victory.

It was Helio’s fourth win at TMS, breaking a tie with Sam Hornish Jr. for the most Indy car victories at the track.
