Former 'DWTS' champ predicts tonight's winner

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Fifth season 'Dancing with the Stars' champion Helio Castroneves has a hunch about who will walk away with the mirrorball trophy.

Castroneves, who said he "was very surprised" about the unexpected elimination of Simone Biles, predicted that Rashad Jennings "might have a shot" to claim victory on Tuesday evening.

Know primarily as a successful race car driver, Castroneves will once again compete in the Indianapolis 500 this weekend. He said his passion from racing stemmed from time spent driving go-karts with his father in his native Brazil.

"I used to watch the Indianapolis 500 in Brazil, and now I can't believe I've not only won three times but I'm going to be racing again," he said. "Cross your fingers!"

Catch all the Indianapolis 500 action this Sunday at 11 a.m. on ABC13.
