Keanu Reeves: Certified Speed Racer
by Marcus Errico
This time out Keanu Reeves didn't need Sandra Bullock riding shotgun to feel the need to Speed.
The Matrix man dusted the field Saturday at the Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Grand Prix. Reeves took the checkered flag ahead of such stars as Adrien Brody, Raven-Symoné, Tim Daly, Carlos Mencia, Alex Trebek, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Fonzworth Bentley, pro skateboarder Danny Way and E!'s own Ken Baker, who finished second.
"I'm a little shocked," Reeves told E! News after his victory lap. "It felt good.
"It was a great experience and thanks to the other racers, we had a great group. And thanks to the fans."
On Sunday, the pros will take over, including Hélio Castronves, making his first racing appearance since being acquitted of tax-evasion charges on Friday.
