2010 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race Star Driver Lineup Revealed

This year's Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race will again see celebrities lining up against the pros as part of the annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 17. The celebrity lineup includes comedian and writer Adam Carolla as a favorite for winning the title, followed by Zachary Levi, star of NBC's "Chuck," and actor Patrick Warburton.

Other stars competing in race-ready Toyota Scion tCs on the 1.97-mile street circuit are Brian Austin Green, Adrien Brody, Chris Ashworth, Tony Hawk, Jesse McCartney, Christian Slater, Tika Sumpter and Megyn Price.

"I know this track because I've driven it," Anthony Curtis, president of LasVegasAdvisor, said in a release. "I've watched these drivers train, and it's empowering to see the excitement and competitiveness surrounding the participants. It's going to pay off at the finish line with children in need getting the ultimate prize—it's a win-win for all."

Besides the celebs, IndyCar World Series Champion Jimmy Vasser, Scion Racing Champion Tanner Foust, Steve Millen, BMX Champion Bestwick Jamie Bestwick, Marty Nothstein and last year’s winner Keanu Reeves, will represent the pros.

"It's been a pleasure to have Anthony Curtis handicap the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race once again for entertainment purposes," said Les Unger, Toyota's national motorsports manager. "Every year, his picks take the competition up a notch for the drivers and add an extra dimension of fun for the audience."  

The race will also have a charity purpose, as it does every year. Toyota will donate $5,000 to Racing for Kids in the name of each celebrity racer and another $5,000 to the winning racer's charity of choice.
