UPI News Service, 02/05/2009
A federal judge has refused to dismiss the U.S. government's tax-evasion case against two-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves, the Miami Herald reported.
Castroneves is charged with failing to pay taxes on more than $5 million in income.
The Herald said that his sister, Katiucia Castroneves, and his Michigan lawyer, Alan R. Miller, are accused of assisting the Coral Gables, Fla. resident in the alleged tax-evasion scheme from 1999-2004.
Penske Racing is using Will Power as his replacement in the No. 3 car during preseason testing.
