Rhumba Racers and Radio Rockers
Few awards carry the same prestige as the championship of Dancing with the Stars and the Billboard trophy for best pop/rock group. Once someone has either of those on the shelf, they know they've reached the zenith of human achievement. For some, the pain of knowing they'll never be able to top this success must be so great they become recluses, never making a dent on pop culture again. Thankfully the allure of Homestead-Miami Speedway has enough pull to bring two of these legends -- Helio Castroneves and Three Doors Down out of hiding for one event.
SpeedJam 2008 will feature three races (Castroneves races too, but you're excused if all you think of is wiggling hips in tastefully bejeweled clothing): IndyCar Series season-opening GAINSCO Auto Insurance Indy 300, the GAINSCO Grand Prix of Miami, and the IndyPro Series Miami 100. There will also be family-friendly events and a special performance by the "Kryptonite" rockers. Tickets start at $30, and things kick off at 9 a.m.
Sat., March 29, 9 a.m., 2008
