Shatner who puts the pedal to the metal in ABCs Fast Cars & Superstars series says nothing makes him more of a maniac than racing stock cars against other celebs on the NASCAR speedway.
Says Shatner: My family is aghast when I race, but I love it. Im overwhelmed by extreme fear, but that helps me become a stronger, crazier driver.
While Shatner tries to keep his composure during his races, he admits something changes inside him every time he steps on the gas.
He jokes, Im usually a meek, mild person but when Im racing my meek, mild personality flies out the window and I turn into a ravening animal behind the wheel. Theres profuse sweat on my upper lip and my hands get hairier. Im an animal!
