I hate this guy. I hope he will spend years in Jail. Our country does't need tax-evasion people. He is corrupt. He did the same in Brazil.

How can he be blamed for the money when he left it up to the managers????????? I bet none of the drivers know any of their finances... I hope to see Helio back in his car in a few weeks

Our country does't need tax-evasion people.
When his jail time is up here in the U.S
He should be Barred from this country.

Wind Tunnel said that several NASCAR drivers have the same financial manager that Helio does. So..for all of you Helio haters, maybe some of your NASCRAP drivers will be cell mates with Helio.

Maybe the back taxes can be used for real drivers ed in Florida....
Also the entire Pagoda should be checked out for tax fraud... All the way to Japan, Italy, and Australia.... Sad for America-

Also, IRL has lost their best advertiser; without Helio, IRL is nothing but a circus.

He's a good person. Driving at 250 mph is enough, there's no time to think about technicalities of your accountant. I think he was a mere passenger in this issue.

You can't blame Helio he had financial advisors as other race car drivers. He is a good person. He helps childern who belong to YMCA. Also Roger Penske backs him 100% says he isn't guilty. Heilo hasn't recieved the money they are talking about. It is like our 401k you pay taxes when you want the money. I think the IRS should pay more attention to our goverment its known that their are a few people in Washington who hasn't paid their taxes.
