 Fredric was only one spot away from reaching the podium in the Toyota Pro-Celebrity Race.


We usually don't mention anything about the celebrity race unless someone has some sort of glorious crash, but this year we all had someone we were pulling for…Fredric Aasbo!  Though he was the first Pro to cross the finish line, he was ousted by 2 celebrities and 1 regular Joe.  Adam Carolla, star of dude favorites The Car Show, The Man Show and The Hammer, took home the checkered flag and award winning author Hill Harper crossed the finish line less than a second behind him.  The regular Joe who took the final podium spot was General Manager of Quality Toyota, Biff Gordon.
