James Hinchcliffe may not be hitting the stage until later this month, but the new Dancing with the Stars season 23 contestant is getting a head start on the competition.

While kicking off the Verizon IndyCar series this weekend, Hinchcliffe prepared himself for the competition early with fellow driver and DWTS season 5 winner Helio Castroneves, who offered up a ton of tips. Sadly Hinchecliffe wasn’t able to move as smoothly as Castroneves did, but the crowd still erupted with “Vote for Hinch” anyway. Sounds like a good sign to us.

But before he showed the crowd his moves, Hinchcliffe recorded this hilarious Dancing with the Stars promo last weekend.

1 week from tonight @Hinchtown will start his @DancingABC campaign w/ @SharnaBurgess. #TeamStopAndGo #DWTS pic.twitter.com/Wyu0GXsq14

Knowing your left from right is a basic dancing skill, so Hinchcliffe is already ahead of the game. See a sneak peek of his moves below.
