LEXUS PARTNERS WITH USA EQUESTRIAN AS OFFICIAL AUTOMOBILE


Lexus has partnered with USA Equestrian to become the Official Automobile of USA Equestrian. As part of the sponsorship, Lexus will host test drives at the Del Mar National in Del Mar, CA, to be held May 2-4, the Foxhall Cup Three Day Event in Douglasville, GA, April 17 - 20, and the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event in Lexington, KY, April 24 - 27.
The Lexus test drives will give consumers the opportunity to experience the luxury and performance of Lexus' lineup of luxury sport utility vehicles first hand. At the Del Mar National Horse Show a donation will be made to the Don Diego Fund, a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to outstanding seniors participating in the Del Mar Fair/San Diego Fair, for each test drive taken. At the Foxhall Cup a donation will be made to the Shepherd Center, a rehabilitation hospital, treating people with spinal cord injury, acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis and other neuromuscular illness or urological problems, for each test drive taken.

Lexus has become synonymous with luxury since its introduction in 1989. By offering some of the finest quality luxury vehicles and providing benchmark customer service, Lexus has become the top-selling luxury nameplate in the United States for three years in a row. Lexus and its 198 dealers have repeatedly achieved the highest honors for both the products they sell and the customer service they provide as rated by the independent research firm of J.D. Powers and Associates.
