IndySoup Music: “Drive Slow, Please Helio”

My two cents on the whole “Helio thing,” set to music.

Lyrics (as sung to “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” Trad.)

Drive slow, please Helio
Down in the braking zone
If you lift too late
And don’t get on the brakes
You’re gonna take me out of the race.

I looked in my mirrors
And what did I see?
Gonna take me out of the race
I saw the number 3
Come crashing into me
Gonna take me out of the race.

In all the debate about her driving. her celebrity or her loyalty to IndyCar, we must not lose sight of the bigger picture, so here’s three.
