Staying grounded: Castroneves knows goal of IndyCar changes

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Helio Castroneves has no desire in being airborne and upside down again at Indianapolis. Neither does IndyCar, which is making changes in hopes of preventing those kinds of scary flips at high-speed tracks.

"For safety, that's what we're looking at," Castroneves said during testing Tuesday in Texas that included curved plates affixed to the bottom of cars to help prevent them from flying into the air after spins. "It doesn't matter what car it is."
