Helio Castroneves indicted on tax evasion, tax fraud

There’s no such thing as income tax in auto racing, Cynthia!

I’m not that much of a racing fan, but this is seriously weird news. Usually when people hide huge amounts of income it’s because the income was from criminal activity, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here.

Typical racing driver. Can’t get embroiled in an NFL-style scandal like a nightclub shooting… has to be some boring white-collar crime.
