Joe Biden and Colin Powell Will Drag Race on Jay Leno’s CNBC Show

joe-bidenNo, you are not reading that headline wrong. Vice President of the United States Joe Biden is going to be drag racing with Colin Powell.

Well, technically, it was taped already, but we will actually get to see it happen on CNBC in just a few weeks.

A CNBC press release says that the premiere of this season of Jay Leno’s Garage will feature… well, here’s the verbatim line:

In the November 9th episode, Jay explores the deep emotional connection people have with their vehicles. He meets one of Vice President Joe Biden’s greatest loves… a 1967 Corvette; then sets up a once-in-a-lifetime drag race between the Vice President and Colin Powell.


Jay Leno actually revealed this was happening in a summer appearance on The Tonight Show.

Leno described how “hilarious” it was to see Biden zooming around in his Corvette.
