Castroneves Prefers Longer Road to Tax Trial

Hélio Castroneves isn't feeling the need for legal speed at this time.

The toe-tapping IndyCar driver has asked a Miami judge to postpone his upcoming trial on tax-evasion charges until next November so that he can maintain a full racing schedule in the coming year.

Castroneves, whose name spread beyond the racing world when he won Dancing With the Stars last year, is scheduled to go to trial on March 2. He has pleaded not guilty to using a Panamanian shell corporation to hide more than $5.5 million in earnings between 1999 and 2004.
