Toyota Pro-Celebrity Race

Wow! Quite an experience that was. I gotta say, to be a part of such an amazing group of talent and people makes me feel very privileged. I am lucky that I got to be a part of this.

When I first got the invite from Les at Toyota, I couldnt believe what I was reading on my email. I was being invited to the longest going Celebrity Race in history. And for a good cause too! The Toyota Pro-celebrity race donates money to the Racing for Kids foundation and has already donated $20million.

The first time I got to meet the staff and drivers was at our training/practice day about 3 weeks prior to race day. I didn't know what to expect since I am not in the Hollywood acting field. But everyone was nice and down to earth.

The next time we met was the media day that I did double duty switching between the Scion Racing tC and the Pro-celebrity tC. These Scion tCs are insane!!! They handle so well. And the brakes on these cars bite hard.

They even prepared lunch for us where we would be matched up with our cars. By the way, there are 5 pros among all the drivers and the pros are Frankie Muniz, Cody Swanson, Christian Rado, Brian Austin Green, and myself.

The pro drivers are fast!! I didn't know Frankie was such a good driver. I only know him as malcolm.

Anyway, I'm happy I was able to be a part of such an amazing group of talent. The two ladies that raced were awesome people too. Jillian, I feel like I'm watching my friend on Good day la now. Megyn, you are hot.

Everyone I met, I hope we can stay in touch.

Thanks Toyota for doing this. What you guys do make a big difference for children not only in LA but across globe.

And thanks for letting me win. Hahaha

Scion power.
