The 46-year-old singer-and-actor was thrilled when the vehicle was revealed at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth on Wednesday (04.04.18), and after going for a 160mph drive with Xfinity driver Tyler Reddick, Jared mentioned he wanted to take the auto home. The staff laughed off the comments, but Leto wasn't kidding.
However, the "Kings and Queens" hitmaker is unlikely to do much speeding around the vehicle if he does buy it as he admitted after the drive he was relieved when it was over.
"This was absolutely a dream come true", Leto said after the ride. It was intense, the way they take those turns and corners, it's full on - he was putting pedal to the metal.
Like a lot of people who experience riding in a race auto for the first time, Leto told the Star-Telegram in Texas he didn't know exactly how to react in the passenger seat because the ride is so "intense".
"When I saw the checkered flag, it was a bit of a relief". "It's either you scream for joy or you scream for panic, but you're screaming".
Zizzo says the custom wrap was done by 360 Wraps, a local Texas company.
Jared Leto's journey across America as part of the "Mars Across America" promotion for Thirty Seconds to Mars' new album found him turning up in Fort Worth, Texas Wednesday (March 4), where he was able to hitch a ride with NASCAR Xfinity driver Tyler Reddick. but not without eating a little dust first as the driver did donuts around Leto.
