Who knew Kate Del Castillo was an undercover speed demon? This past weekend, the Mexican novela star hit the track with a host of other celebs for the Long Beach Toyota Pro Celebrity Race.
Kate wound up nabbing 10th place (not too shabby) among the 18 participants. Former Man Show star Adam Carolla took the grand prize, with CSI: NY’s Hill Harper coming in a close second.
Several other Latinos strapped in for the event too, including UFC fighter Cain Velasquez and Cuban-American actor Eddie Cibrian. Cibrian actually earned a few headlines that day after his stock car crashed into a wall.
As with most celebrity events, the entire race was held in the name of charity. Del Castillo earned her children’s foundation $5,000 for her top ten placing…and quite a lot of street cred in the NASCAR boys’ club!
