Castroneves on a mission to win race stolen from him

Helio Castroneves – other drivers say he continues to block

Helio Castroneves is returning to Edmonton to defend a win he says was stolen from him in 2010.

"I can't wait to be there to turn my season around and get my second victory in a row for Edmonton," the 36-year-old Brazilian said. "Unfortunately the series didn't agree with me."

Castroneves provided the most controversial ending to an IndyCar race last season when he drove to victory at Edmonton's City Centre Airport. But he had already been penalized for blocking his teammate Will Power three laps from the finish.

The black flag penalty dropped Castroneves to 10th while Scott Dixon was declared the winner even though he didn't technically run one lap in front.

"I don't agree with what they did, but you have to move on," he said. Windsor Star
