Patrick Dempsey Likes It Fast

We brought you Dr. McSteamy on Monday, so it’s only fair that we give you Dr. McDreamy as well. How does Patrick Dempsey get his kicks in real life, behind the wheel of a race car.

The Grey’s Anatomy operator has moved up to the ranks of Indy car owners, putting him in the mix for the Indianapolis 500, the marquee racing event traditionally prefaced by Nabors’ booming rendition of “Back Home in Indiana.”

“I feel like a kid in a candy store,” Dempsey said in a statement announcing his alliance with Vision Racing.

As a co-owner, TV’s good Dr. Shepherd will watch his team’s two drivers compete in as many as 14 Indy Racing League events this year. The season kicks off Mar. 26 with the Toyota Indy 300 in Miami. The 90th edition of the Indianapolis 500 is set for May 28.
