Castroneves makes dance show final

Helio Castroneves and professional dancer Julianne HoughIndyCar Series front-runner Helio Castroneves has qualified for the final of American TV show 'Dancing with the stars' on November 26.

The former Indianapolis 500 winner is one of three celebrities that will battle for the title with their respective professional dance partners.

"It's so surreal. You work so hard, and then it pays off," said Castroneves. "You can't believe it."

The competition started in mid-September, shortly after the end of the IndyCar Season.

In the past week, Castroneves has attended the American Movie Awards as a guest presenter, and he attended the premiere of the Disney film 'Enchanted'.

"We've been practicing hard, but it was a good break for us," he said. "These things would not have happened if I wasn't on the show."
