MOORESVILLE, North Carolina – Feeling threatened from the recent success of up and coming Scott McLaughlin at the Indycar test at COTA, Helio Castroneves has sent team boss Roger Penske flowers and multiple heart-shaped boxes of chocolate in an effort to gain more Indycar rides in 2020 and beyond.

A note included with the flowers read:

Rog,

We’ve been through thick and thin together and I am forever grateful for the opportunities you have given me.  Let us not forget the bond we have and never let the young and talented to get between us.   

Yours Truly,

Hel.”
