It was the celebrities' turn around the track Saturday at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Brian Austin Green was the man to beat this year after winning last year's pro-celebrity race.

But, grabbing the checkered flag this year was actor William Fichtner, who has starred in "Armageddon" and "The Dark Knight."

He says he's not quitting his day job after the big win.

"I didn't want to say it before today but it was a great experience," he said. "I'm not quitting my dad job as an actor but this was really something special today."

The pro-celebrity race was expected to raise more than $100,000 for Racing for Kids, a national organization that benefits children's hospitals in Southern California.
