Facility NewsHigh Schoolers will race to raiseawareness of distracted driving dangers


Grand Prix New York (GPNY) will host a 90-minute endurance race to benefit Project Yellow Light, an organization that promotes awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. Greenwich High School Students Ben Albano, a GPNY Junior League Champion and MAZDASPEED Challenge driver, along with classmate Beau Dealy are organizing the race and soliciting participants from high schools throughout Fairfield, CT and Westchester, NY. The race will take place on June 14th at 7:00 pm at Grand Prix New York, 333 North Bedford Road in Mt. Kisco, NY.

As many as 20 teams of 2 to 5 drivers will race to complete the most laps in the allotted time, competing for prizes which include seats in the Skip Barber Teen Safety and Survival School. Entry fees of $100 per team are fully tax deductible, and all proceeds go directly to Project Yellow Light, thanks to Grand Prix New York and generous sponsors 12 Beverage, Birdie's Auto Spa, The Coughlin Group, Fresh Green Light Driving School, Skip Barber Racing School, Rand Insurance, and U.S. Pavement.

“Project Yellow Light’s mission to encourage young people to stop driving distracted is immensely important, and Grand Prix is the perfect venue to help raise awareness and support,” said GPNY Vice President Nat Mundy.

To sign up to race, or for more information, contact Ben Albano at benalbano@me.com or Beau Dealy at bdealy19@gmail.com.

About Project Yellow Light
Project Yellow Light is a scholarship competition designed to bring about change, in partnership with the Ad Council, Mazda, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and National Organizations for Youth Safety. Applicants have a clear mission: encourage peers to develop and embrace safe driving habits. For both the high school and college contests, the first-place winners receive a scholarship in the amount of $5,000, second-place finishers receive $2,000, and third-place finishers receive $1,000. Project Yellow Light was founded in memory of Hunter Garner - a 16-year-old with a dry wit, wicked sense of humor, interesting creative mind, who loved music, running, and had lots of friends from all walks of life. Hunter died in a car crash on June 10, 2007 at the age of 16. For more information about Project Yellow Light, visit www.projectyellowlight.com.
