Donors strive to best NASCAR driver, boost nonprofit at Driven Raceway
Facility NewsMore than 30 competitors took to the track Wednesday to beat the lap time set by NASCAR driver Jim Inglebright.

The Leaven’s Solano Great Race fundraiser at Driven Raceway brought several heats full of hopefuls who were aiming to beat the professional driver’s time of 17.55 seconds. Inglebright started off the event by hugging corners and sliding around corners.

When told he was 0.3 seconds off the course record, Inglebright second-guessed a few curves from his previous laps.

“That would have been so cool,” he said. “I would have made them put my picture on the wall.”

That lighthearted mood was shared by most who put on the helmet and pumped the pedals. Even those bouncing off barriers and spinning out seemed to enjoy themselves.

Wednesday’s race raised money for The Leaven’s Grande Circle operation, which is among several locations in Fairfield and Suisun City that offer educational after-school activities. While Inglebright got to run the laps solo, those trying to beat his time were grouped together in heats.

Senior Airman Cameron Balazic won his heat with a time of 18.3 seconds. He said it took a couple of laps to get acclimated, but he had visited the track before and leaned on his past experiences.

“It’s hard to get a feel for it at first,” he said. “(After) a couple of laps, I had it dialed to just me driving.”

Mark Lillis, executive director of The Leaven, said he was happy to see the third year of the event draw more people than in past years. He said it was great to see the competitiveness among elected officials, military personnel and other donors. He said the event is a good way to gain awareness for The Leaven, being that people can’t regularly visit the sites.

“There’s a lot of ways we can connect with the community,” Lillis said.
Grand Prix New York Sponsors SurvivetheDrive® Classes at Somers High School
Facility NewsGrand Prix New York doesn’t want our teens driving in the fast lane. The racertainment center, located in Mt. Kisco, NY, teamed up with the SurvivetheDrive® organization beginning in 2011 to help educate teenage drivers on safe driving techniques and the consequences of reckless driving. Since 1996 SurvivetheDrive®, a nonprofit organization and educational service, has provided risk-awareness and safe-driving presentations to schools and community groups.

“Grand Prix New York is proud to sponsor such an essential educational service for our teens,” said Nat Mundy, Vice president sales & marketing at Grand Prix New York. “We know how exciting and enjoyable it is to get behind the wheel, especially for new drivers. We want to make sure that teenagers learn how important it is to be a responsible and safe driver.”

Recently, Bob Green, director and trainer of SurvivetheDrive®, shared his knowledge of driver safety at Somers High School. Known for his enthusiastic and humorous presentations, Mr. Green provided students with examples of how powerful the impact of a car can be and why it is important to learn safe driving skills at an early age. Through personal anecdotes, PowerPoint slide shows, graphic demonstrations about the physics of driving and what happens during a crash, Mr. Green has truly been instrumental in teaching countless students about the safety, responsibility and consequences of driving.

“At SurvivetheDrive®, we strive to educate young drivers about the consequences of irresponsible driving habits and the significance of making safe choices on the road,” said Mr. Green. “Presenting our teens with the startling reality of what could happen when we don’t practice safe driving techniques is a great accident prevention tool.”

Grand Prix New York Leadership On The Road to Better Health With Help From Skinny Buddha
Facility NewsGPNY Vice President Nat Mundy is looking and feeling a lot better than he was 9 weeks ago, thanks to the folks at Skinny Buddha. He began his journey to better health with “Buddha’s Detox” – a 5-day food and exercise regimen designed to make people aware of how their diet affects their health and get their bodies functioning at an optimum level.


“I was ready to get my energy back after seven years behind a computer desk,” said Mundy. “I knew I needed to pay more attention to what I was eating, and my exercise regimen. Skinny Buddha got me on the right track very quickly.”


During the detox, Mundy ate a very specific diet of organic meals supplied by Skinny Buddha, and trained with a Skinny Buddha personal trainer for half an hour each day, focusing on multi-joint exercises to burn fat and boost metabolism with the goal of a more effective detoxification.


According to Skinny Buddha Catering Company Head Chef Elyce Jacobson, this program is unique because it’s the only one that provides prepared organic meals with one-on-one personal training.


“Buddha’s Detox is not a long-term solution,” explains Jacobson. “The goal is to make each person aware of their past habits,while giving them the motivation to change any that are detrimental. Buddha’s Detox also provides clients with a safety net – a spring board to bounce back if he finds himself slipping back into bad habits.”

Moving forward, Mundy continues to train with Skinny Buddha two times a week, losing weight and feeling better and better.


Skinny Buddha offers many other program and meal combinations in addition to to Buddha’s Detox. Visit www.myskinnybuddha.com for details.
