Over the weekend, our own Lisa Stanley put the pedal to the metal in the 2014 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Race as part of the 40th annual Grand Prix festivities in Downtown Long Beach.
We’re so proud of Lisa for competing in the race and putting in an incredible effort on the track! She finished the overall race in 17th place with a time of 18:51.972.
Actor Brett Davern, who stars as Jake Rosati in MTV’s hit-series Awkward, took home the big prize on Saturday as he crossed the finish line first. Following Davern was Bates Motel actor Max Thieriot in second and Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody in third.
According to the press release, “Toyota will donate $5,000 to Racing for Kids in the name of each participant, for a total of $95,000, and an additional $5,000 to Racing for Kids on behalf of Davern. Racing for Kids is a national nonprofit program benefiting children’s hospitals in Long Beach and Orange County, Calif. Toyota has donated more than $2 million on behalf of the race and its participants to various children’s hospitals since 1991.”
The Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race is scheduled to be broadcast on CBS Sports on April 27, and will be re-airing numerous times. (Check your local listings for details.)
