Castroneves still chasing fourth Indianapolis 500 victory

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Trying to persuade Helio Castroneves to rank his three Indianapolis 500 victories is tantamount to asking an adoring mother or father to rank their children in order of affection.

Ask him what it would be like to win a record-tying fourth — at the 100th running of the iconic race Sunday and on the 50th anniversary of Penske Racing — it is impossible for Castroneves to deny: It would mean more than any other victory in an open-wheel career spanning nearly two decades.

"It's a special number," he said. "It's something bigger."
