Fast Cars & Superstars: Finale - Chicago, IL, USA - John Elway was famous for his late-game heroics throughout his long NFL career, including a playoff fourth-quarter comeback against the Cleveland Browns known as “The Drive.” Well, that is officially Elway’s retirement nickname now as well, as he came out of nowhere to win “Fast Cars & Superstars: The Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race.”

Here at KickingTires, we had suggested that any of four celebs could drive off with this event: pro wrestler John Cena, folk singer Jewel, her boyfriend and ex-rodeo star Ty Murray or extreme athlete Tony Hawk. All four gave healthy chases Sunday night, but each one came up short, as Elway bested them by a jaw-dropping 4-plus seconds.

Jewel bounced off the wall at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in her practice lap before she tore up the racetrack, pitting like a pro and standing on the accelerator. Ex-Steelers coach Bill Cowher followed Jewel, but a bad pit stop stall killed his chances as he couldn’t go fast enough to make up the time. Tony Hawk also had a slow pit time, but his speed around the track helped him edge Jewel by a quarter-second. Ty Murray, though, set a new standard, cruising through his pit stop and scorching the track, leaving Jewel and Hawk 11 seconds behind. Murray even took a celebratory donut spin through the infield. John Cena took his best shot at Murray, but even with a solid pit stop, he lost by a split second to Murray, although he too went for a donut spin in the infield.
