Will Ferrell Beats Britney On The TrackOctober 20, 2005
Ferrell is preparing for a NASCAR-inspired comedy and went for a spin with Richard Petty at the driver’s school for prospective riders. “I did eight laps,” the actor told Sporting News. “My top speed was 135. He figures that made him a winner. “The goal was to beat Britney Spears,” Ferrell said. “We heard Britney Spears had done 123. I was like, ‘I can’t lose to Britney.’ That was the mantra.” The untitled movie began filming in Charlotte, N.C., last month and is to be released next summer.
