Celebrating Legends: Honoring 20th Indy car season for Castroneves, Kanaan


Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan have been friends and racing competitors going on 30 years.

This year, both drivers are racing Indy cars for the 20th season. They came to the United States together in 1996 to drive as teammates in Indy Lights. They moved up to Indy cars two years later and each eventually found his way to a powerhouse team in the Verizon IndyCar Series: Castroneves with Team Penske and Kanaan with Chip Ganassi Racing.

Along the way, they have accumulated a combined 46 race wins, 63 pole positions, four Indianapolis 500 triumphs and one season championship. They are truly two of the living, driving legends of INDYCAR.

Tonight at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Brazilian buddies will be honored with a look back at their successful careers. The event will be hosted by longtime motorsports commentator Gary Gerould and will stream live on IndyCar.com at approximately 10:15 p.m. ET.
