Watkins Glen, NY (July 3, 2007) -- The star power of this weekend's Camping World Watkins Glen Grand Prix weekend just got a little brighter. Popular actor and KONI Challenge Series driver Patrick Dempsey is scheduled to compete in the Supercuts 200 this Saturday, July 7 at 3:30 PM.

Dempsey is best known for his role as Dr. Derek Shepherd (a.k.a. Dr. McDreamy) on the TV drama Grey's Anatomy. The long-time racing enthusiast competed in 5 events last year in the Grand-Am KONI Challenge Series, formerly Grand-Am Cup Series, with a season-best finish of 20th at Miller Motorsports Park. In 2007, Dempsey has been limited to two races due to his working on a movie for Sony. He finished a career-best 6th at Homestead-Miami Speedway earlier this season.
