Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver James Hinchcliffe shared top spot on the leader board during Monday’s edition of Dancing With The Stars. The Mayor of HinchTown and his professional dance partner Sharna Burgess put on a performance for the audience and the judges.

Len Goodman returned this week following a few weeks away from the show. The pair scored all nines for a total of 36, sharing the leader board with Calvin and Lindsey.

Hinch and Sharna secured that that score despite the fact that Sharna injured her knee in their final rehearsal on Monday evening. Hinchcliffe is not only doing a fantastic job on the show but he is also being a fantastic ambassador for the Verizon IndyCar Series.

Last week, Hinch and Sharna appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show while on Thursday they made an appearance on Good Morning LA.

Hinchcliffe tweeted a picture of the Firestone Racing Verizon IndyCar two seater parked outside the security hut with  Vote For Hinch branding. The Mayor of HinchTown’s appearance on the Dancing With The Stars opens up the Verizon IndyCar Series to a new audience.

Team Penske’s Helio Castroneves not only appeared on the show but won in mirror ball in 2007.
