Lindsay is proud to sponsor Gripped Racing, a team of approximately 30 local racers competing in Road, Mountain and Cylcocross events! We have provided the team with a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sportswagen Clean Diesel TDI to help them get around when they’re not on their bikes.

Gripped Racing is a team of cyclists bound together by a common thread of friendship, camaraderie and a desire to improve their lives through the challenges of training agrippedracing_2nd racing. The Gripped Racing team is dedicated to having fun in the great outdoors while promoting a healthy lifestyle through training, racing and encouraging friends to join in their adventures. Learn more about Gripped Racing on their Facebook page.

Gripped Racing will be part of the Lindsay team that will be participating in Bike to the Beach (#B2BDC) on August 1, 2014. B2BDC is a 107 mile bicycle ride from DC to Dewey Beach that raises funds and awareness for Autism charities. To see all of our fundraising efforts and to make your own contribution please click here.

Gripped Racing is committed to the local community and global environment by participating in river clean-up days, trail maintenance and other volunteer activities. Gripped Racing recently held a 2014 Tour de France viewing party that raised money for Bike to the Beach and Autism Speaks.

 

Gripped Racing team member and filmmaker, Jason Berry, developed a new invention, RaceDots, that replace pins to grippedracing_racedots_vwattach race numbers to clothing. The RaceDots are magnets that make it easy to attach race numbers securely to clothing without poking holes in your jersey or yourself. Berry’s RaceDots solution sandwiches the number and clothing in between a pair of rare earth magnets, which are also keyed to prevent them from migrating once positioned. You can order your RaceDots online at RaceDots.com.

Here is a video on how to use RaceDots:

We have some excellent Father’s Day gift ideas, especially if you want to beat out your siblings and get Dad a gift he’ll never forget!

fathersdaybbqIf your dad is more of the rugged type, check out the 2014 Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado 2500HD, Ford F-150, or Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.  If Dad has a little bit sportier taste, then the Lexus IS F-Sport, Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, or the VW GTI might be right up his alley.

fathersdayapron

However, if you’re on a slightly smaller budget, we also have plenty of great gift ideas in the Parts Departments at all of our locations.  Whether it be new floor mats for his Chevy, Mopar Parts & Accessories for his Jeep, Nike Apparel and Cadillac golf gear for him, or VW-themed gifts like a BBQ Apron and 3 Piece Set or the VW Traveling Tunes Cooler, the possibilities are endless!! fathersdaycadillacapparel

PNats_3Game_Facebook

After a successful sponsorship last season, Lindsay is once again partnering with the Potomac Nationals in Woodbridge, VA. The P-Nats won the first half championship last season and hope to build on that this year and boast much of the young talent in the Washington Nationals farm system.  Furthermore, due to proximity, Washington Nationals players coming off of the disabled list regularly appear in Potomac on rehab assignments (We’re hoping Bryce may be in play for the Autism Awareness Jersey Day).

We have three sponsored dates:

June 8th – Autism Awareness Jersey Day

July 26th – Lindsay Sponsored Fireworks Show

August 16th – Jayson Werth Wolf-a-rine giveaway

Police Instagram

This week, May 12th– May 18th is National Police Week, a time for us to remember all of the American Law Enforcement Officers who have lost their lives during their public service.  National Police Week originated on May 15th, 1962 when President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation declaring it as Peace Officers Memorial Day, which falls within the week annually.  Now, this week brings together thousands of law enforcement from around the world to participate in a variety of events in Washington, D.C., all of which pay homage to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

 

Lindsay Automotive Group shows its support for its local Police Force at Lindsay Lexus of Alexandria, where there is a satellite office for the Alexandria City Police.  Lindsay is proud to offer this small gesture to the amazing officers that risk their lives to protect us on a daily basis.  Lindsay Automotive Group also had the opportunity to help one incredible officer after he was shot while on duty just over a year ago.  Virginia’s largest auto body repair shop, Lindsay Collision Center, in Springfield, VA, made contributions that led to the restoration of the officer’s beloved 1975 Mercedes by his friends and family.  The officer was thrilled to come home to such a wonderful surprise, and everyone else was just as thrilled to have him home!  Read more about the extraordinary Officer, Peter Laboy, here.

 

The Lindsay Automotive family would like to remind everyone of the hard work, dedication, and bravery that is exhibited by our local law enforcement.  Please remember to be safe while on the roads.

May is a time for warmer weather, the opening of swimming pools, baseball games, and cookouts.  May is also Military Appreciation Month hosting two holidays, Armed Forces Day on May 17th and Memorial Day on May 26th.  As a reflection of both of these May themes, we decided to have a cookout in honor of our Armed Forces at our Lindsay Cadillac location.  Our General Manager, Tim Robinson (pictured right), manned the grill while our staff took the time to appreciate some of the freedoms provided by the men and women that have dedicated their lives to serving our country. At Lindsay, many of our employees have served, or have family members that serve, so it was nice to come together and share stories over some hamburgers and hotdogs.

Lindsay Automotive Group would like to extend its most sincere gratitude to all who serve in our military forces- past, present, and future.  The sacrifices that these individuals make every day can never be repaid, but that doesn’t mean we all can’t make small gestures in a show of appreciation.  One such gesture is being offered by GM.

From May 1st-June 30th, General Motors is pleased to offer supplier pricing to all Veterans along with Active Duty members, Reserves, and Retirees- including their spouses- of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard. In addition, members of USAA are eligible for additional discounts.  We will be offering these discounts at our Lindsay Cadillac and Lindsay Chevrolet locations.  In order to be eligible for these discounts, customers need to register at gmmilitarydiscount.com to indicate their branch of service and status.  Customers will then receive an authorization number to be presented at our dealerships.

In addition to this program, Lindsay Auto Group has also made several donations to the Wounded Warrior Project and continually hires veterans at all of its locations.  With Lindsay Cadillac so close to the Pentagon and Lindsay Chevrolet in close proximity to Ft. Belvoir and Quantico, Lindsay is proud and honored to serve so many of our Armed Forces. Thank you!
