2007 - Dave Mirra Takes Top Spot

Polesitter, and BMX Champion, Dave Mirra took the lead at the green flag and - with a little help from George Lucas and Annamarie Dean - held on to win the 31st Annual Toyota Pro / Celebrity Race.

04 14 07 01 mirra skinner1Mirra, the professional BMX rider who has notched 14 medals at the X Games, led tennis great Martina Navratilova and actor Joshua Morrow with one lap remaining when Lucas and Dean collided going into Turn One, with both cars ending up in the tire barriers!

The debris field and car damage resulted in a yellow, then red, flag and the race ultimately ended because of time constraints at 8 official laps. Neither Lucas nor Dean was injured in the collision.

NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series star Mike Skinner was close to making it a real battle before the Lucas/Dean collision. Starting 20 seconds behind the celebrities with fellow pros Bucky Lasek and Scott Kelley, Skinner had roared into fourth place after only five laps, and was right on Morrow's bumper when the race was halted.

Tustin Toyota General Manager RJ Romero finished fifth overall and fourth in the celebrity ranks.

Celebrities Taking Part:

Kelly Hu, George Lucas, Dave Mirra, Kathryn Morris, Joshua Morrow, Martina Navratilova, Emily Procter, Robin Quivers, John Salley, Aisha Tyler and Kendra Wilkinson.

Professionals Taking Part:

Todd Bodine, Scott Kelley, Bucky Lasek, RJ Romero and Mike Skinner.
