Bruce Jenner, former Olympian turned reality TV star and head of the Kardashian clan, can add one more item to his résumé: Lamborghini Series racer.

Jenner, 63, took to the speedway in the Oak Tree Grand Prix at Virginia International Raceway on Saturday, joining other celebrity racers like "Grey's Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsey.

"I had heard about it a lot but never had the opportunity to come here," Jenner told reporters of the popular race.

No word on how Jenner ranked in the race, but his son Brandon reportedly rode with him.

Jenner has been in the news lately after a recent skin cancer scare.

"It's all sun damage from the '60s and '50s when I was competitively water-skiing and living on a lake and all my training outside," he told E! Online last month. "Nobody wears sunblock back then. I first had one here [points to cheek], just a little red spot. It's a Basal cell carcinoma, which is a — basically it is a skin cancer, because it doesn't heal.

"On the nose, I had a little red spot… The problem with the nose is, there's no skin to cover it up, to cover up the hole. Then I had to go to a plastic surgeon and he does this whole procedure where he… cuts the skin off your nose and replaces it. So it's a little bit more complicated just to fill the stupid little hole."

Jenner became a household name after he won gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympic Games in Montreal.
