Helio Castroneves Seeks Permission To Race In Australia

Helio Castroneves is asking a Miami judge to change his bail conditions on tax charges so he can compete in a race in Australia.

The race car driver and 2007 “Dancing With The Stars” champ is barred by a court order from leaving the country. A judge scheduled a hearing Friday afternoon on Castroneves’ request to change that so he can drive in the Oct. 26 race.

Castroneves was indicted last week on federal conspiracy and tax evasion charges and is free on $10 million bail. Prosecutors say Castroneves used offshore accounts to hide millions of dollars in income from the Internal Revenue Service.
