'Fat naked' tax felon freed from jail
Memorial Day thanks

From IRS clutches to top of the IRL

Congratulations to Helio Castroneves, winner of today's Indianapolis 500.

That headline is borrowed from a comment by one of ABC's race announcers. It's a perfect assessment of how Castroneves' life and career has turned around in just a month.

I know the cheers from the crowd were for the driver. Helio, who also won new nonrace fans with his winning steps on Dancing With the Stars, is one of the Indy Racing League's most popular competitors.

But I suspect a lot of folks urging Helio home during the final laps also were yelling in joy that he had already captured a tax victory, too.
