An avid Boston sports fan, actor Patrick Dempsey was a bit bummed that the planned IndyCar race was scrapped in Boston as the actor said, “I would love to race in Boston."

"Yeah it's too bad. I think it would be good for the city," Dempsey said. "It would be a good showcase, three series, and to be able to do it you have to have the support of the community. Hopefully in the future."

The actor stated that he's learned a lot from auto racing, especially from his sponsors' team approach to competition, which has changed his life "in a very profound, positive way." Dempsey compared his experience with sports to the mission of Positive Tracks.

"Sports are a great thing. You learn a lot about yourself," he said. “You push yourself past what your comfort level is and when you come out the other side and have success, it makes a huge difference in one's life."
