Lexus 0 to 60 Launches Season 3 With John Salley, Mekhi Phifer, Big Tigger, Carmelita Jeter And More (Video Recap)

Also Appearing On Lexus 0 to 60 are Big Tigger, Jaleel White, Omar Benson Miller, Mekhi Phifer, Curtis Hamilton, Scott Pruett, and Jack Hawksworth

It’s the battle of the returning champs in season three of the Lexus 0 to 60 Challenge. This intense, fun-filled racing competition pits two celebrity teams against one another to see who will reign supreme on the road and it’s all hosted by Big Tigger.  The new season is live now on the Lexus YouTube channel.  

Team Salley is made up of actors Jaleel White (Family Matters, Me,  Myself & I) and Omar Benson Miller (Ballers, CSI: Miami) with NBA legend and season one Lexus 0 to 60 winner John Salley taking the spot of team captain. Their coach is Scott Pruett, one of the most decorated race car champions of all time. 

Team Jeter is led by three-time Olympic gold medalist and season two Lexus 0 to 60 champion, Carmelita Jeter with actors Mekhi Phifer (The Bobby Brown Story, Canal Street) and Curtis Hamilton (Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge and Michel’le) holding their own as well. Team Jeter’s coach is Jack Hawksworth, one of today’s fastest and most versatile professional racing drivers.

Both teams will hit the course at the notorious Laguna Seca, an 11-turn, 2.2 mile paved road course on the beautiful coast of central California. Each celebrity teammate will take to the road in either the Lexus GS F, LC 500 or RC F Track Edition.

Lauded as equal parts luxury and performance, the Lexus GS F sports sedan holds its own as an exhilarating and worthy contender. With enhanced steering, suspension and braking systems, the LC 500 is known as one of the most responsive Lexus models available commanding attention on the road and at Laguna Seca. The Lexus RC F Track Edition boasts a plush interior, quiet engine and is regarded as an exciting addition to the increasingly rare V8 sports car landscape.

Over the course of the two-day shoot, both teams took to the road to compete in five different challenges including the Slide & Shalom Challenge, the Corkscrew Challenge and the Team Relay — each designed to test the cars and teammates’ abilities behind the wheel. The winner of the competition gets to take home bragging rights and one of the featured cars for a year. 

Season three promises to deliver the same action-packed excitement of the previous two seasons plus more car, more talent, more stunts and more antics from the celebrity teams.

So, who will win this year’s Lexus 0 to 60 Challenge?  Tune in to find out when the season premieres April 29th exclusively on the Lexus YouTube channel.

NFL Players Malcolm Jenkins & Derrick Morgan, India.Arie To Join NMAAM’s “Sounds of Social Justice” Event

 The National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) will host Sounds of Social Justice, a fundraising event focused on the intersection of music, athletes and activism, on Wednesday, April 24, at 5 p.m. at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel, located at 611 Commerce Street.

The event will feature a panel discussion moderated by Michael Eric Dyson, Georgetown University professor, activist, media personality and renowned author, with the following panelists:

* Malcolm Jenkins, two-time Super Bowl champion, three-time Pro Bowl safety (Philadelphia Eagles) and co-founder of Players Coalition, a nonprofit organization created to impact racial and social inequality

* Derrick Morgan, nine-year linebacker with the Tennessee Titans

* Dr. Dina Bennett, senior curator for NMAAM

Following the panel will be a live auction featuring artwork focused on the music and artists of the social justice movement. The night will conclude with a musical performance by India.Arie, Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter and national chair of NMAAM, local soul singer Jason Eskridge, and local female R&B trio The Shindellas.

“Music, like sports, can bring people from all facets of life together. Some of the most influential and popular musicians have successfully used their platforms to draw awareness to societal issues, such as racism and criminal justice reform, as well as to express frustration and hope with the goal to make the world a better place,” Jenkins said. “The National Museum of African American Music is honoring decades of musicians for their cultural influence. This event will challenge and reflect how music and athletes are contributing to societal change.”

NMAAM, set to open in early 2020 in Nashville, is dedicated to educating, preserving and honoring the legacy of African Americans and their contributions to music. With over 1,400 artifacts already collected, NMAAM will be the only museum in the world whose mission is solely focused on black music.

“Teaming up with athletes and artists who have made an impact through their activism is really exciting for us because we share their commitment to social equity and education,” said H. Beecher Hicks III, CEO and president of NMAAM. “The history of American music is one of struggle and triumph, just as it is with athletes. We’re honored to join forces in celebration of the ways in which music and sports can come together to advance our nation.”

As part of the event, a curated exhibit of artifacts from Sam Cooke, James Brown, Alicia Keys, Paul Robeson and Malcolm Jenkins, all of whom used their profiles to advocate for social justice, will also be on show.

All proceeds from the event, including ticket sales and money from the live auction, will go to NMAAM. The event begins at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel at 5 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by the panel discussion at 6 p.m. and musical performances at 7 p.m.
