Patrick Dempsey, Revving up for Season Three, Takes Racing Break

at . Comments

Last week was busy for Patrick Dempsey. When he wasn't signing autographs on his cover picture of Entertainment Weekly, he was making numerous left turns around a race track.

The star was in at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, over the weekend. For a promotional tour on behalf of Grey's Anatomy, Season Three? No way. This doctor was trading in his scrubs for racing gear.

Not only did Dempsey competed in the Grand Am Cup, a race that lasts for 2 and a half hours and covers 200 miles, the actor's team finished 20th out of 60 cars. Not too shabby.

"It's a very fun, challenging track," Dempsey said."I love to race. It's humbling for me, it's challenging. I like the comradery. I love the people out here. It's something I've always loved watching as a kid."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.
