Stars players and coaches served as casino dealers and helped raise $325,000 for the Dallas Stars Foundation, which is a 41% increase over last year’s $230,000 raised.  Fans enjoyed the intimate access and camaraderie with their favorite Stars players as well as the Mardi Gras-themed cuisine from Cool River and signature beverages.

“I think this was the best Casino Night yet,” said Jordan Case, president of Park Place Lexus and Park Place Jaguar. “This year’s ‘Diamond Champagne’ raffle sold out in 10 minutes. And the live auction grossed nearly double what it did last year. Everyone had a good time and the proceeds went to a great cause.”

Lexus Wants You to Run With the Bulls

Let’s face it, who doesn’t like to go fast? Whether you are a CEO, soccer mom, college student or anything in-between most everyone loves the thrill of speed. As your pulse rate climbs, the hair on the back on your neck stands up right and that natural high of flying across asphalt courses through your veins all while a roaring machine serves as your chariot to this oasis of adrenaline. There is just something that the feeling of going fast gives off that infatuates us as human beings. It especially hooks the people at Lexus and for the first time ever they want to show the people just how much they like to go fast. For the first time in the company’s prestigious history they are releasing three of their new cars on the race track. Never before has Lexus released any of its vehicles on the track to dealers but these cars are different. Each new model Lexus is releasing is inspired from the asphalt up with speed at the fore front of each design.

The new 2015 NX is Lexus’ first ever compact crossover with a turbo charged engine. It is a car that takes everything Lexus is known for: quality, fuel efficiency, reliability, comfort,  etc and adds a 2.0-liter, direct-injection, 235-hp, 258-lb-ft torque, 17-psi of boost. In America the 2015 Lexus NX will be available in a two variants, the Hybrid and the Turbo, with AWD available for both and the F-Sport package. Lexus is looking to make quite a slash with these new models and the NX is just where they are getting started when it comes to speed.

The 2015 RC F has a powerful and refined V8 that promises to take both the track and street with its own aggressive style. Under the hood that 5.0-liter V-8 is rated at 460 hp mated to an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters and a special torque-vectoring differential. The chassis is specially tuned and wider 19-inch wheels are fitted to provide the car with tremendously precise handling. The interior on bot the 2015 RC and RC f models is impeccable with craftsmanship and materials that look just as this chic speed machine should. All three of these cars can run and run fast. The only thing Lexus doesn’t know is if you can handle it.

That is why Lexus is hosting its first ever “Running of the Bulls” starting off in Dallas, TX September 15-16 at Motorsport Ranch to give people a chance to feel the power behind all three of these new Lexus cars.  Lexus will be traveling the country showing off these cars and for a full tour calendar of where and when Lexus will be click here.

Lexus Wins its 17th JD Power Award

When you buy a car you want to trust that everything’s going to run smoothly, the way it is meant to be. And there’s one manufacturer that has been doing it the “way it is meant to be” for almost the past two decades. This standalone manufacturer in the dependability category is Lexus.

Park Place-lexus-what-car-jd-power

When it comes to dependability, the world knows that winning the JD Power award is the apex. This year Lexus again took the top spot in J.D. Power’s 2014 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study – now three straight years. The Japanese auto maker has averaged 40 fewer problems per 100 vehicles than the second closest manufacturer, and that’s a lot. The 2014 Lexus ES, LS, GS, GX and RX won individual awards as well, each coming in top of their class. Although Lexus lost the top ranking in 2009-11, it had been on top of the survey for 14 years before that. All this being said, the Lexus brand stands as the cornerstone of quality and dependability in the automotive industry. Lexus’ constant “Pursuit of Perfection”, partnered with its penchant for innovation, has helped this automaker establish itself as quality manufacturer. Their vehicles exude class, comfort, efficiency and most of all dependability.
