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."
