Frankie's busy schedule
Frankie Muniz has a hectic schedule over the coming weeks - both as an actor and a race car driver.

Muniz starts a new movie being filmed in Miami Florida during the month of May. But en route to Miami, Muniz will pilot his #2 Jensen MotorSport Formula BMW USA race car on April 29th & 30th for 2 days of testing at the Carolina MotorSport Park circuit.

Muniz (20) will then have a hectic month of May, both with filming, and his first two Formula BMW USA races at Mid-Ohio and Lime Rock Connecticut. Muniz states, "This film is a commitment made long ago. My focus is on my racing, so I won't miss any races, tests, or preparation days. Also, Miami is such a cool city, so spending 6 weeks there filming should be good fun."

Fans of Frankie will also have the chance to hear him speak about his racing live on ESPN Radio @ 8:20 p.m. E.S.T. on Monday April 24th, and he will also be featured on ESPN Cold Pizza later this week (air date TBD).
