Castroneves to race in Long Beach

3:22 pm on 18 April 2009

The Brazilian motor racing driver Helio Castroneves will take part in this weekend's round of the Indycar series in California.

Castroneves has been acquitted of six counts of tax evasion in a Florida court.

The two-time Indianapolis 500 champion will be in the number 3 Team Penske car for the 35th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Castroneves didn't race the first round.

New Zealander Scott Dixon is in 16th position overall after the first round a fortnight ago.
