Total success for JPM Charity event ‘Race of Stars’ Carrera de Estrellas @ Medellin, Colombia.  By Dave Lewandowski Published: Dec 2, 2013 @ 

Winning the race was great, but knowing that the Race of Stars karting event in Medellin, Colombia, last weekend would benefit children was paramount to Helio Castroneves.

The IZOD IndyCar Series championship runner-up won the night race of Team Penske teammate Juan Pablo Montoya’s annual event that benefits the Formula Smiles Foundation. The organization, which seeks to improve the quality of life of children in Colombia, was founded in 2003 by Montoya and his wife Connie.

Carlos Munoz, Gabby Chaves, Sebastian Saavedra and Gustavo Yacaman also competed.

Chaves placed third in the night race, followed by Montoya, who was racing in Team Penske colors for the first time. Check out the race video below. GP2 Series racer Julian Leal won the first race.
