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

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
