Shirtless hunks on 'Magic Mike'
Alex Pettyfer is feeling the need for speed.

The Magic Mike star and a few pals headed to a track in Burbank, Calif., on Monday for a few rounds of go-cart racing. There, the star showed off his driving skills — and some killer abs.

So does the hunky star have a future career as a race car driver?

The blonde Brit clearly meant business, reserving the entire track for three hours of fun, and his winning streak indeed proved acting isn’t his only talent.

Looking mighty fine in his crash helmet, the now-bearded Pettyfer stripped down (sort of), lifting up his white t-shirt to reveal his toned torso for photographers.

Perhaps, Pettyfer, 22, was just blowing off some steam — or mending a broken heart. The actor has been plagued by reports of a split from model/actress Riley Keough,23; rumors have also swirled that he cheated on Keough, granddaughter of the late Elvis Presleywith lingerie model Chelsea Heath.

Heath vehemently denies the claims.

Pettyfer had been dating Keough for almost 10 months. Several reports in March claimed the two were engaged, though neither of them ever confirmed the rumor.

Pettyfer, meanwhile, still has a serious connection to another past flame: he has the initials of Emma Roberts tattooed on his wrist, as well as her name on his ring finger.
