I spoke with Castroneves during one of his promotional visits for the Dual Converse Chuck Ii
"It was a great day for the team," Castroneves said following the race.
And he's comfortable with that.
And Saturday certainly achieved that, with weather, a tremendous crowd and a tremendous race.
But this weekend is about Penske's dream, another chapter in his relentless attempt at reinvigorating the local as well as the national perception of Detroit. It's a huge event. Whether or not you appreciate the intricacies of racing, you must appreciate Penske's ingenuity in creating a spectacle that showcases positive aspects of the city.
And what's great about the Dual is that Sunday offers an immediate attempt at redemption.

appreciates the importance of the team winning more than any individual accolades. Castroneves understood how much this weekend means to his boss, Roger Penske.
Castroneves missed his fourth Indianapolis 500 championship last Sunday on the final lap losing it by just .06 of second behind Ryan Hunter Reay, the second closest Indy 500 finish in history. Castroneves lost it on Lap 199, with one lap remaining in the race, when Hunter Reay got him on the same outside pass that Castroneves had used to pass Hunter Reay just a few laps earlier.
This is a sport craving that transcendent star.
Castroneves is IndyCar racing's LeBron James, that mixture of precision and personality that can't help but attract attention. But he also Converse Dainty Black Leather Mid
But Castroneves was nonetheless pleased that his teammate, Will Power, won the first leg of the weekend doubleheader at Belle Isle. Castroneves won the pole for Saturday's IndyCar race and that contributed a little more excitement because he has become one of those characters that potentially overshadows the entire sport.
But Castroneves still wants to win the race.
Power is more of a street course racer than Castroneves is. Everyone connected with Team Penske was ecstatic for him and his victory. But it doesn't change that Castroneves is the biggest personality, not just on Team Penske, but in IndyCar racing altogether.
It's practically impossible for the ever effervescent Castroneves Converse White Sneakers to appear angry. Though he finished fifth Saturday, he still found a way to make it a good day. And that can't but help the overall objective of IndyCar racing in improving its profile.
Another aspect of that allure is that Castroneves is one of the few who beat the Internal Revenue Service. He was acquitted five years ago on six counts of tax evasion stemming from allegations that his family created a dummy Panamanian corporation to funnel funds from his first contract with the Penske Racing team. Rather than settling on a compromise, Castroneves aggressively fought the federal charges because he knew he was innocent.
He had the pole for the first race in the weekend Dual in Detroit on Saturday. He loved his car. He loved his support. He was very confident of his chances in the 70 lap race and led a good chunk of the overall laps. He's without question the biggest star in the sport.
DUAL IN DETROIT: Will Power holds off Graham Rahal
"Absolutely, I was disappointed," he said last week, "but it didn't take me long to realize that it was a great race that everybody will be talking about for years, and I was a part of it. You want to win. You always want to win. But it was a great finish."

He was visibly devastated afterward. Television cameras captured him in his car, seemingly distraught immediately after the finish.
And he finished fifth.

He's a relentless battler, and who can't appreciate that?
