Zachary Levi posted the fastest time of all celebrities to earn the pole position in the 34th-annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race on Friday, April 16, according to a press release. Zac narrowly beat actors Adrien Brody and Brian Austin Green in the qualifying race. He led the pack today in what has become the worldâ€™s longest-running, most successful celebrity racing event. (Watch for final results later this weekend.) CART Champion Jimmy Vasser finished first among all drivers and won in the Pro category, followed closely by Formula Drift Champion Tanner Foust.
â€œI did it!â€ said a gleeful Zac at a news conference after the qualifying session. â€œThis is a great race, with a terrific group of people, that benefits an amazing cause. I canâ€™t describe how pumped I am for tomorrowâ€™s race.â€

As pole-position winner in the qualifying session, Levi designated his $15,000 donation in conjunction with the 13th-annual People Pole Award to the charity Operation Smile, which works to transform the lives of children who suffer from cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
