There’s nothing like the rush you get from driving a fast car. However, racing down the highway isn’t always as “Fast & Furious” as it may seem. J.D. Williams (The Wire), Lamann Rucker (Greenleaf) and Redaric Williams (The Quad) found this out for themselves when they enlisted in Lexus’ #0 To 60 challenge hosted by Big Tigger.
Split into two teams and joined by Tia Norfleet (the first Black female NASCAR driver), Keith Robinson, and Olympic medalist sprinter Carmelita Jeter, the celebrities and drivers head to one of the world’s most intimidating road courses, Road Atlanta. The contestants will be taking on 2.5 miles of elevation changes, hills and curves that will leave them wishing they paid closer attention in Driver’s Ed.
Luckily, each driver is in good hands, as they’ll be driving vehicles from the Lexus high-performance line. At the end of the season, the lone winner of the competition takes home a brand new Lexus.
