SportsHollywood: Rate the competition here: Who are your biggest threats?
CONSUELOS: Darra Torres. When you see the instructors they all hop into her car before anybody. First I thought it was because she was hot, but I think it's because they're pushing her. She's fast. A little squirrely, but fast. She's got a great shot.
SportsHollywood: If Piper Perabo crowds you, do you feel any pangs of remorse if you drive her into a ditch at 100 mph?
