Lazarus Naturals put the pedal to the metal at the Pacific F2000 Double Pro Race in Salinas, Calif. Professional race car driver and Lazarus Naturals sponsored athlete Daniel Swanbeck won last weekend's event at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca.
We're partnering with Daniel for his impressive racing resume and commitment to helping others. He began racing at age 7 and has had national success in karting and Formula Car Racing. Daniel transitioned to Sports Car Racing last year and competed in the IMSA Sports Car Series.
Daniel is active in the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) community after being diagnosed with this chronic condition in his early 20s. He launched Drive4IBD, a Crohn's and Colitis patient awareness organization. He also fundraises and speaks at events in the hopes of helping find a cure for IBD.
"I'm excited to partner with Lazarus Naturals as we share a strong belief in helping others. The CBD industry is one that I believe will continue to help a large demographic ranging from athletes to those with chronic diseases," said Daniel. "Lazarus Naturals is a company with such great core values and I couldn't feel better about this partnership."
Daniel started in sixth place during last weekend's competition, but ultimately prevailed in the 20-lap race with a time of 32:08. He set the fastest lap of the race (1:28.739) and the hard charger award. This was his first race with the new Drive4IBD livery.
"We took a car that needed a lot of work and not only got it to a competitive level, but took it to the front," he said. "This was a great victory of overcoming a great challenge and rising to the top."
