Keanu Reeves: Actor, philosopher, heartthrob and now, as it turns out, master motorist.

The 44-year-old Speed star took the checkered flag at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, on Saturday, beating out fellow wheel gripping show-bizzers such as Adrien Brody, Raven-Symoné, comedian Carlos Mencia, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek and pro skateboarder Danny Way during the celebrity portion of the weekend-long race extravaganza. (The pro racers, such as recently exonerated Helio Castroneves, take over today.)

“I’m a little shocked,” Reeves told E! News after smoking his show-biz colleagues. “It was a great experience and thanks to the other racers, we had a great group. And thanks to the fans.”
