Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman Compete in Celebrity Car Rally
Celebrities including Carmen Electra and ex-husband Dennis Rodman are collecting speeding tickets in their Maseratis and Lamborghinis and signing autographs at gas stations as they participate in an 8-day, 3,000-mile charity race currently zipping along the interstate highways.
Bullrun USA 2005 is a car rally for the rich and famous who each payed $13,000 to participate. The round-trip race started in Hollywood and had stops overnight in Las Vegas, Telluride and Boulder (Colorado), and Salt Lake City. Unlike a normal auto race, drivers in the rally are credited for reaching check points in a certain amount of time.
Other participants include: Star War's Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson , Frankie Muniz, Nick Lachey, Guess jeans model Landi Swanepoel and MTVís Jackass Crew. (Paris Hilton has also been mentioned, but she's also been sighted in southern France, so she probably dropped out.)
, Former NBA bad boy, Dennis Rodman continues to get into trouble, even though he's competing for charity. He was pulled over and ticketed twice Tuesday while driving his gold-and-black Lamborghini through Colorado.
With his face painted on both sides, Rodman was ticketed for speeding and reckless driving near Frisco, Colorado. A trooper allegedly clocked Rodman going 98 mph on Interstate 70, where the speed limit is 65 mph.
A short while later, he received a second ticket in western Colorado for allegedly driving 89 mph. "It's been that kind of day for me," the former NBA rebounding champion said.
Rodman said he thought Colorado authorities were targeting him, adding he plans to fight the tickets. Since retiring from the NBA in 2000, Rodman has had his share of run-ins with police in Newport Beach, California, who have gone to his home more than 70 times because of loud parties.
A producer said "Cops, Cars and Superstars," the show that will result from the Bullrun rally, is expected to air on the Bravo TV channel sometime in November. The official website is www.bullrun.com.
