Helio Castroneves said he’ll call it “mini me.”
AAA Alabama produced bobble-head dolls of Castroneves, who will drive the No. 3 AAA Insurance Team Penske car this weekend in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park. Castroneves visited AAA Alabama headquarters in Birmingham on April 4 to greet AAA members and fans.
“This is great,” he said. “I have to take a picture of this and send it to (teammate) Will (Power).”
Castroneves also has teamed up with DreamWorks Animation’s “Turbo” for a safe driving public service announcement. The feature film is scheduled to be released July 17. A promotion for the animated film is on the rear wing of Castroneves’ car this weekend.
