Brian Austin Green wins Long Beach celebrity race

April 17, 2010 |  1:48 pm

Actor Brian Austin Green won the celebrity portion of the annual pro/celebrity race Saturday that precedes the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, while former driver and now IndyCar team co-owner Jimmy Vasser won the professional class.

Vasser also was the overall winner after he passed Green -- whose credits include "Beverly Hills 90210" -- on the final lap of the charity race.

Tanner Foust, another professional, also passed Green on the last lap to place second overall, with Green finishing third in the entire field.

Among the celebrities, actor Adrien Brody ("The Pianist") was second to Green and Zachary Levi ("Chuck") was third. Patrick Warburton, whose roles included David Puddy on "Seinfeld," was fourth among the celebrities.

All the drivers raced in identically prepared Scion tCs around the 1.97-mile, 11-turn seaside course that will be used in Sunday's grand prix.
