Michelle Rodriguez Tries Her Luck on the 'Top Gear' Race Track (VIDEO)

Michelle Rodriguez, 'Top Gear'The new US 'Top Gear' (Sun., 10PM on HIST) is just getting started, having premiered just last month. So when Michelle Rodriguez took to the track, she didn't have a lot of celebrities times to worry about trying to beat yet. So how'd she do?

"Why do I look so angry?" she asked while watching the playback of her race. On a wet track, she feared the worst while driving. "I almost flipped that sucker," she admitted at one time.

Rodriguez spotlighted a few more of her concentration expressions to everyone's amusement, before the final results were revealed. "Apparently you're chewing tobacco while you drive," she was told, though she thought it looked more like she was chewing gum. We think she was remembering a particularly spoiled glass of milk she'd swallowed.

In the end, she finished second-to-last, just above Buzz Aldrin, though some leeway should be considered for how wet the track was. Maybe she'll get a chance to come back on the show during better conditions and redeem herself. Or face Aldrin head-to-head in a "Loser Takes Last" battle!

This puff piece isn't going to prolong the agony of this "New American Version" much.

No question..why the BBC lets them use the name is beyond me. I have been VERY CAREFUL clarify the difference when I tell someone to check out Top Gear.

Why is it when we copy a foreign show, we take it and make it so damned lame and unwatchable, and why is this tripe on the HISTORY channel? what does this crap have to do with the station's title? Move it to Speed Network where it belongs.

Moving this show to the speed network won't save it.

The US version of Top Gear is so lame. Only the UK version rocks.
