I Duno but I would have to say Milka has that field covered!!!

Is that it for the Pro's? No ex-Champcar drivers? Surely they could have found some out of work open wheel racers sitting around!

Something tells me that after you see who Leilani Munter (http://seejanedrive.com/Images/model/modelshot8_lg.jpg) is, you'll forget all about Milka. ;)

BTW, anyone else here hope to see Buzz Aldrin punch out Adam Carolla?

Anybody else besides me watch Monster Garage? I love that show. And yes, Jesse James is a direct decendant of THE Jesse James. He builds some sweet custom bikes.:cool:

I usually watch Junkyard Wars. Jesse James does produce some sweet looking choppers. Check the link. West Coast (http://www.chopperdogs.com/)

If I had an extra $60k laying around . . .

I wonder if he would rather be known for his bikes or his show?

Professional Racers Shawna Robinson and Jeremy McGrath Join Angie Everhart,
Buzz Aldrin and Josh Brolin in the 27th Annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race

LONG BEACH, Calif. (March 20, 2003) - NASCAR Winston Cup racer Shawna
Robinson and Supercross legend Jeremy McGrath will race head-to-head
against stars from film, television, music and sports in the world's
longest-running, most successful celebrity auto racing event.

The 27th annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race will be on Saturday, April 12, in
Long Beach, Calif. The 10-lap charity race, held on the 1.99-mile downtown
Long Beach street circuit and broadcast to a national TV audience, is
annually a part of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach race weekend.

In 2002, Robinson became the first woman in more than 20 years to compete
in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series Daytona 500. Robinson, who in 1994 was
also the first female to win a pole position in the NASCAR Busch Series
Grand National Division, will try her hand at road racing against an
eclectic mix of professional drivers and celebrities. Among those will be
McGrath, a seven-time AMA Supercross Champion who recently retired. A
living legend in the world of motorcross racing, McGrath holds a number of
records including most 250cc career wins (89), most event wins (72),
consecutive wins (13), and eight major titles.

The "Pro" category will also include Milka Duno, Leilani Münter, and actor
Josh Brolin. In 2001, Duno was vice-champion of the American Le Mans
Series Driver's LMP 675 Championship, and in 2002 she placed 12th among 54
drivers in the ultra-competitive LMP 900 class.

A former Hollywood precision driver and stunt double for Catherine
Zeta-Jones, Münter is the newest member of No. 54 Team Bristol Motorsports
in the NASCAR Busch Series. In addition to testing the No. 54 car this
season, she will run in select NASCAR Busch North and Late Model races.

Brolin, who stars as 'Senator Bill Sterling' on NBC's "Mr. Sterling," was
the 2000 Toyota Pro/Celebrity race champion and competed as a "Pro" in
2001, where he finished a close second to Scott Pruett. He has also logged
a number of testing miles in a Trans-Am car for the Rocketsports Racing

The expected field of 16 also features an eclectic group of entertainment
personalities, internationally renowned celebrities, and figures from
sports and media.

Stars driving in the 2003 race include the following: Angie Everhart
(actress and former model), Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11 astronaut and second man
to walk on the moon), Picabo Street (Olympic Alpine Skiing Champion), Adam
Carolla (co-creator and co-host of Comedy Central's "The Man Show" and
"Crank Yankers," host of nationally syndicated radio show "Loveline"),
Jesse James (host of Discovery Channel's "Monster Garage"), Tommy Shane
Steiner (American Music Awards nominee for "Favorite New Artist Country
Music"), Peter Reckell ('Bo Brady' on NBC's daytime soap "Days of Our
Lives"), Steve Hartman (KCBS-TV and XTRA Sports 690 broadcaster), and Tony
Potts ("Access Hollywood" correspondent).

"The Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race is renowned for attracting celebrity and
professional drivers because it offers the high-speed challenge of real
racing," said Les Unger, Toyota's national motorsports manager. "With stars
from film, television, music and sports, this year's race is sure to
provide thrills for fans."

Also racing in this year's event are Bud Gordon, owner of Quality Toyota in
Corona, Calif., and CEO of Gordon Automotive; and Dave Pasant, who earned a
spot by making the high bid for the 2003 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race seat at
last year's Toyota Grand Prix Charity Ball auction, which is held annually
during race week.

As part of the race event, Toyota will help raise more than $100,000 this
year for "Racing for Kids," a non-profit program benefiting Southern
California children's hospitals in Long Beach and Orange County. Toyota
will donate $5,000 in the name of each participant, and another $5,000 to
the race winner's charity of choice.

In addition, a $10,000 donation will also be made in conjunction with the
sixth annual "PEOPLE Pole Award." Sponsored by PEOPLE magazine, the award
honors the pole-position winner of the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race qualifying
session on Friday, April 11. Throughout the past 12 years, the Toyota
Pro/Celebrity Race has generated more than $1 million for charity.

In addition to his Monster Garage gig, Jesse James also owns and operates West Coast Choppers in Long Beach, Ca. Average price for a custom fit Diablo chopper? $60,000. Shaquille O'Neal had one built.:cool:

No. I'm sure you are the only one. Nice thought though.:rolleyes:
Adam may deserve it, but not from an American Icon. No respect... :shakehead

I have a hard time accepting Shawna Robinson as a "professional race car driver."
