Well, here it is - the day of the FINALE of Dances With Helio. Oddly there are still three and not two competitors left, but hey - it's television! Our beloved Happy Feet is going for the Magic Disco Ball trophy, so if you feel the vibe you can have yourself a redial fest tonight.
Helio thanks you in advance, courtesy of IndyCar.com.
Hello, IndyCar Series fans:
I wanted to take a moment to say "Thank You" to all of you for supporting Julianne and me during our "Dancing with the Stars" season. I truly have the greatest fans in the world and I know that it's because of you (and what Julianne has taught me of course!) that we have made it this far in the competition.
Can you believe we are in finals? Not bad for a race car driver!
As you all know, we will be performing next Monday night for the final time as we dance the Quickstep, the Live and a freestyle routine, so we need your votes. We are on the final stretch and the checkered flag is within sight, so please, please make sure you call, text and vote online. I know with your support, that Disco Ball Trophy will be ours!
I've had a great run this fall and the experience has been one of the best things I've ever had the opportunity to do. But, while it's been a blast showing off my skills on the dance floor, I can't wait until next spring to kick off the 2008 IndyCar Series season at Homestead-Miami Speedway. I'm looking forward to a great season in 2008!
A big "Thank You" to all of you that have been voting and I look forward to seeing you at the races soon!
