Join INFINITI and Hardwood Heroes in the Fight Against Cancer!

Screen Shot 2017-03-16 at 3.35.11 PM

INFINITI has partnered with the NCAA® and Coaches vs. Cancer® again in an effort to raise $700,000 in the fight to end cancer. On March 31st INFINITI will host the 2nd Annual Hardwood Heroes game as part of the 2017 NCAA® Men’s Final Four® Weekend.

This year’s basketball team consists of tough cancer survivors who are putting their will and spirit into playing and raising money and awareness to defeat cancer. The team members include:

Devon Hinton
A 20-year-old bone cancer survivor that underwent a 10-month treatment plan that included an amputation of his left leg above the knee.

Kristina Anderson
A courageous 28-year-old woman who survived ovarian cancer. She was also a multi-sport high school athlete and cheerleader at the University of Illinois.

Melissa Kovalesky
Diagnosed with the incurable chronic myeloid leukemia, Melissa is a 33-year-old fighter who uses her strength and courage to continue to fight.
Jared Ornoski
Struck with the devastating diagnosis of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Jared had to quit playing basketball and have an emergency lymph node surgery his junior year. This 19-year-old fighter used a positive attitude to keep him going and was able to return to school his senior year and start every game.

Oscar Barragan
A 33-year-old with a “warrior mentality” who has faced a cancer diagnosis twice. He endured five rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, but stands tall today cancer free for the past four years.

Lena Spotleson
She was once placed on a ventilator after a chemotherapy-related infection put her in septic shock. Now a 36-year-old woman, Lena has been cancer free for 10 years and believes she can survive anything that comes her way.

J. Dee Marinko
Faced with the option to either keep his leg and possibly die or cut it off and live, J. Dee made the choice that would keep him alive. He now uses this story as a testimony and refuses to allow it be a setback.

This team will face an opposing team of returning 2016 survivors. Others can show their support by building and submitting a bracket round by round. For every correct pick INFINITI will make a donation to Coaches vs. Cancer® and the participant will be entered for a chance to win a trip to the 2018 Final Four®. For more information click here.

Groundbreaking QX50 Concept Unveiled At Detroit Auto Show

Attendees at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit were abuzz about the dramatic launch of INFINITI’s stunning and technologically groundbreaking QX50 Crossover Concept.

infiniti-qx50-columbus-oh

New VC-Turbo A Technological Marvel.

The gorgeous QX50 marks a significant engineering accomplishment for INFINITI, as the automaker debuted its radical new 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine that will power the QX50 and other vehicles. The world’s first production-ready variable compression ratio engine was designed as an alternative to existing hybrid and diesel engines.

The 268-hp, in-line, four-cylinder VC-Turbo Variable Compression powerplant achieves superior efficiency by adapting its compression ratio to adjust for different driving conditions. It, therefore, delivers an optimal balance of performance and fuel economy while providing a high level of efficiency and torque. Additionally, the VC-Turbo is projected to be 27% more efficient than comparable V6 engines.

According to Roland Krueger, president of INFINITI Motor Company, “The pioneering VC-Turbo powertrain represents a leap forward for engine development. Vehicle engineers believe the breakthrough in internal combustion technology would come from mastering the variable compression ratio. This new technology will be available in new INFINITI models from 2018.” Continue Reading →

Five Professional Athletes From Columbus, Ohio

With the Buckeyes in town, Columbus has become known for fostering world class athletes who come from all parts of the nation, but did you know that there are a number of famous athletes that are from the Columbus, Ohio area? Let’s take a look at a few across different sports.

Archie Griffin: Running Back

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 3.58.25 PM

The only college football player to ever win the Heisman Trophy twice, Archie Griffin was a star during his time as a Buckeye, where he amassed 19 awards and has since had his number (45) retired, and broke both the all-time rushing and consecutive 100-yard rushing game records held at the time. The Columbus native played in the NFL for seven years for the Cincinnati Bengals, and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.

Jack Nicklaus: Professional Golfer

Considered by many to be the greatest golfer of all time, Nicklaus was born and raised in Columbus, and was also a Buckeye. He has garnered 73 PGA tour victories throughout his 39 year professional career is the third best among golfers all-time and has earned him a host of awards and a well deserved spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Simone Biles: Gymnast

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 3.59.07 PM

Born in Columbus in 1997, Simone Biles has quickly become the face of American Gymnastics. With enough medals to match her age, the nineteen year-old has dominated at both the World Championships and the Olympic Games, and will look to add to that number in the years to come.

Jesse Owens: Track and Field

Although not born here, Jesse Owens moved to Columbus at the age of nine years old, where he grew up and attended Ohio State. He broke the world records for 220-yard sprint, 220-yard low hurdles, and long jump during his time as a Buckeye. He also won gold medals in the long jump, 100 meter, 200 meter, and 4×100 meter relay in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games.

Paul O’Neill: Right Fielder

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 3.59.42 PM

O’Neill played baseball at Brookhaven High School in his hometown of Columbus, and later moved to Westerville to attend Otterbein College. He ultimately played in the major leagues for seventeen years for both the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees, winning World Series titles with both clubs. A five-time MLB All-Star and the 1994 American League batting champion, O’Neill had a stellar career and certainly did his home state proud.
