After an astonishing Indianapolis 500 that saw Helio Castroneves take his fourth win at the race at the wheel of the #06 Meyer Shank Racing Dallara Dallara Honda, taking the lead on the penultimate lap for a fairytale finish for the 46-year-old Brazilian.
Marshall Pruett got busy and swept up a pair of podcasts with both Helio and team owner Michael Shank, Helio also delivering a unique double, the first ever driver to take wins in both the Indy 500 and the Rolex 24 Hours in the same year.
