Judd Brushes Up On Car Race Etiquette

Subscribe to Ashley Judd alerts

HIGH CRIMES star Ashley Judd has finally learned how to curb her enthusiasm at car races, after years of failing to get her spectator etiquette right.

The 35-year-old actress, married to Scottish CART driver Dario Franchitti, admits that when she first attended races, she always managed to cause an upset around the pit crew.

She says, "Everyone is working, so you have to be appropriate. When I first started going to races, I was extremely nervous. It was like being backstage, hoping you don't trip over something or accidentally speak into a live microphone.

"(After a while) they took a picture of me stretched out on the pit wall reading The New York Times the day of the race, and I thought, 'That's a little too relaxed.'"
