Cena races into 'Fast Cars' finale
The WWE Champion has a one in six chance at being a racing champion tonight. John Cena has advanced to the finals of Fast Cars and Superstars -- The Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race.
During the second half of this week's semi-finals Accuracy Challenge, Cena advanced, along with singer Jewel and former NFL coach Bill Cowher. Volleyball player and model Gabrielle Reece was eliminated from the competition. NASCAR Nextel Cup driver Jamie McMurray was Cena's instructor this week. The driver of the No. 26 Ford was quite impressed with Cena's racing abilities, and called him an animal on the racetrack.
"You are crazy!" an energized McMurray told Cena, after witnessing sparks flying out from under The Champ's stock car.
"Bill Cowher's eating Chinese food and John Cena's car is on fire!" yelled host Kenny Mayne.
It's all in a day's work for Cena. The WWE Champion finished first, a whopping 21 seconds ahead of his competition.
"I didn't come to pussyfoot around the track," Cena said with confidence.
Joining Cena, Jewel and Cowher in the finals is some stiff competition -- former NFLer John Elway, skateboard legend Tony Hawk and rodeo champion (and Jewel's boyfriend) Ty Murray.
The one-hour finale airs tonight at 7 p.m. on ABC. Stay tuned to WWE.com for complete coverage of Cena's performance on Fast Cars and Superstars.
