Miles away from annoying Meredith drama, depressing Izzy news and all that Grey's Anatomy jazz, actor Patrick Dempsey flew down to the Homestead-Miami Speedway to pursue his other passion--racing. Dempsey and his co driver Joe Foster posted the fifth fastest speed in their No. 40 Mazda RX-8 on Day 2 of a two day test run for the October 9-10 Grand Am Rolex Sports Care Series. Last time Dempsey was here was in 2008 when he finished in sixth place during the Homstead-Miami race. Apparently it's not easy for McDreamy to escape the Grey's set---a few years back he was a no show at an IndyCar race when producers refused to allow him time off, and, according to inside sources, this particular visit almost didn't happen either. After all, Dr. Shepherd should be back in Seattle saving lives, or at the very least, saving that show from tawdry, schlocky plotlines, no?
