How come Ashley Judd is in this picture of "Helio?" Could it be that it is a picture of Dario Franchitti and the Detroit Free Press doesn't know a flip about racing???

That is Dario for sure and Ashley Judd,the press has a habit of combining the write title with the wrong picture,even tho they talk about Dario in the Article,it's not the Heading,lol

It appears my wife may have been correct when she said Helio and his dance partner looked as though they enjoyed each others company more than they should. I heard this morning she cut her boyfriend loose a few months back and Helio's girlfriend broke their engagement yesterday. Hmmm, coincedence or is the tango still going on?

Oh wow,i didn't know she was that young! Yeah,i saw the interview about her and Apollo and she was saying they were only good friends! I know no matter what,they always have to have a rumor! Nobody else was linked to romance tho,guess because most are all married right? I didn't really watch the show but just a few times!

How old is Helio? Actually I was surprized he won, I thought Mel B and her partner had it lock up even tho Len said the one dance was to slutty.

Well if that is the case then she is too young for him. I read that she denied that they were having an afair.

Irish, hi, how ya doing? I miss Nascar already. I finally went to my first race in Homestead, a Busch race. It was great. I wish Boris raced more often with Nascar. Anyway, have a wonderful Christmas if I don't talk to you before then!!

Helio winning on Dancing with the Stars couldn't have done more for the IRL if they had scribed it themselves. I think it is great. It showed a side of a driver no one had even thought about before. The fact he was on the show drew my interest to watch and got me to be a fan of the show. The man has a great personality and seemed to have put extreme effort into it. I hope more drivers get the chance to be a part of things like this.

He hit the jackpot with that one that's for sure. At Indy the guy is always upbeat and ready to get it done, whatever it is. He's funny on the race scanner but always confident. They picked the best personality in the IRL for this. I hope he rides the fame train as long as he can, Indy loves the man! Well the ladies anyways.

Oh yeah and his smile and dimples are amazing, I can't believe how little he is in person though.
