INDIANAPOLIS (www.incnow.tv) - Brazilian IndyCar driver Helio Castroneves is one of the fan favorites every year at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

From his time on Dancing With The Stars, to his engaging personality, to his ability to just win, Castroneves has become one of more recognizable drivers under the helmet.

Castroneves looks to join A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears in the elite four-time winners circle. If Castroneves wins Sunday, he would become the first foreign-born driver to win the Greatest Spectacle In Racing four times.

21Alive sports director Tommy Schoegler spoke with Castroneves on Thursday afternoon. Click on the video icon to see the entire interview.

The 97th Indianapolis 500 will run Sunday on 21Alive. ABC coverage begins at 11 a.m.
