Celebrities sampled the new Bacon Clubhouse Burger, rode shotgun for the Stingray Experience, and beat the heat pool-side in VIP cabanas.

Many famous faces who attended the party included one of my favorite Glee stars Dianna Agron who was spotted out with her new man Thomas Cocquere and Leonardo DiCaprio who smoked electronic cigarettes and chowed down on a Bacon Clubhouse Burger and fries in his private cabana.

Off-Road Adventure: Selling My Mom's 1982 Datsun 280ZX

280ZXMy 87-year-old Mom has owned her 1982 280ZX Datsun 2+2 hatchback for 31 years with only 105,000 original miles and kept it in almost perfect condition. When she decided to sell it recently, she was hardly driving it anymore because my parents mostly drive a Toyota Avalon. Parting with the one and only car she bought on her own that symbolized her independence was a tough decision! She said it was like parting with an old friend.

Erin Evernham Races at the 3rd Annual Leadfoot Festival

By Erin Evernham

The slogan on my souvenir shirt reads, “To some it’s a driveway, to others it’s a race course, but to Rod Millen, it is a dream.” Rod Millen is one of the most accomplished hill climb and rally racers ever. After Rod and his wife Shelly attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England a few years back, they decided to create their own version of the event in Rod’s home country of New Zealand. And they have done just that with the Leadfoot Festival (as they named it): they have built from scratch a first-class event that brings together classic cars, vintage motorcycles, old race cars, and motorsports legends.

By Sue Mead

Ralleye-Aicha-des-GazellesCasablanca to Essaouira, Morocco: It was no surprise that pro navigator and rally driver Chrissie Beavis, 32, of San Diego, was successful at the arduous and difficult navigation required of competitors in the Gazelle Rally that brought her team to an eighth-place finish out of 150 teams from 20 nations. After all, the multi-talented Beavis has guided many celebrated drivers, such as Rhys Millen, Tanner Foust, Ramana Lagamann and Seamus Burke to numerous stage and overall wins, highlighted by a Pikes Peak win in 2005, a United States Rally Championship win in 2006, and Gold and Silver Medals at the X-Games in 2007 and 2008.

LeeAnn-Shattuck-drag-racing-at-ZMaxBy LeeAnn Shattuck, a.k.a. “The Car ChickTM

We’ve all heard the old adage, “Beware the woman driver!”  Sir Stirling Moss even reiterated his own similar opinion last week, only to be debunked by many women racers in the profession. That normally insulting phrase took on a whole new meaning recently at the the Doug Foley Drag Racing School held at zMAX Dragway in Concord, North Carolina, where I met up with top NHRA drivers, Brittney and Courtney Force, for a day of drag racing.

Mothers and Daughters join with Toyota and Teen Vogue to #ArriveInStyle

Arrive-in-Style_May-Issue_Teen-VogueApril is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and Toyota has joined with Teen Vogue to promote a safe driving campaign to raise awareness of distracted driving, asking mothers and teenage girls to make a mutual commitment to drive safely.

Cars today are built with passive and active safety technology to protect drivers and passengers, but studies show automobile crashes remain the leading cause of death for teenagers. In fact, in 2010, seven teens between the ages of 16 and 19 died every day on average from motor vehicle injuries.[1]

2014_Mitsubishi_Outlander_Front_Exterior_SE_3Brasada Ranch, Redmond, Oregon: Attractive new styling, more powerful and efficient engines and some of the latest creature comforts, even at the entry-level model, define the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander; it’s a crossover sport utility vehicle that seats seven. Mitsubishi says the third-generation Outlander has some “ground-breaking safety features for its class”—and we agree. It is also the only SUV at its price in its segment with three-row seating that comes standard. The new model also gets improved aerodynamics and better sound insulation; high-end technologies include adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and a crash-mitigation system. While Mitsubishi has not announced exact pricing, the new model will be priced close to the outgoing version, with an impressive array of added content over the previous generation.
