Jesse McCartney To Race With Toyota

Jesse McCartney will be trading in his sharp suits for a NASCAR uniform next month when he competes in the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race.

The Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race is part of the 36th annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The historic, 10-lap race for charity on a 1.97-mile street circuit through the downtown streets of Long Beach in Southern California is one of six featured events during race weekend.

The field of drivers — which include Keanu Reeves, Zachary Levi and Christian Slater — will compete in identically-prepared race-ready Scion tCs in what has become the world’s longest-running, most prestigious celebrity racing event.

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. Racing for Kids is a national non-profit program benefiting children’s hospitals in Long Beach and Orange County, Calif.

The Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race will take place on Saturday, April 17th (just days after Jesse‘s 23rd birthday) in Long Beach, Calif.
