Hit Reality Show “Dreams To Champions” starring Brian Olatunji Moving to Velocity


March 10th, 2014 in News by

Professional race car driver Brian Olatunji and the Leadfoot Motorsports team are revving up the 2014 racing season with a big announcement! Hit reality series “Dreams To Champions” has joined Discovery Communications’ Velocity network, set to debut this Saturday.

Dreams To Champions” is back by popular demand. The fast paced ten episode reality series follows motorsports young guns on the fast track. Featuring racers Brian O, Juan Carlos Blum and Jonathan Castro the show was a success when initially shown on SPEED last year. After a massive network overhaul Fox Sports Media Group broadened the channel’s focus to including a vast array of live sporting events. When SPEED was rebranded as Fox Sports 1 the decision was made to drop motorsports oriented reality programming. Discovery Communications seized the opportunity to incorporate “Dreams To Champions” into its programming portfolio on their high octane, male targeted network Velocity.

“We are elated Velocity chose to pick-up Dreams To Champions and grateful to SPEED for giving us the initial platform to let the world know who we are. This opportunity is like being born again and excitement is an understatement!” stated Brian O.

Dreams To Champions” is racing to debut on Velocity, Saturday March 15, 2014 at 3 pm eastern / noon pacific. Be sure to catch each episode and follow Brian O, Juan Carlos Blum and Jonathan Castro as they chase their dreams of winning a professional championship.

Check your local listing for further programming details.

Stay tuned for news of a second heart-pounding season and information on how you could appear on “Dreams To Champions” alongside Brian O.

Giving! Youth! Impact! Leadfoot Foundation’s 6th Annual Driving Excellence Charity Event


September 2nd, 2011 in News by

For the sixth consecutive year, The Leadfoot Foundation, Inc (501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization) will host the “Driving Excellence” charity event. “Driving Excellence” is the marquee event for the Leadfoot Foundation. During the event school supplies are collected then distributed to youth K-12th grade. “Our goal is to give back to the very community from which I came. After all, it takes a village to raise a child,” stated Brian Olatunji (Olatunji is Chairman and President of the Leadfoot Foundation, Inc). Detroit is prime territory to not only give back but focus on school supplies for youth. Although, Detroit has recently been well documented for trouble with public schools, the Leadfoot Foundation has been making an impact by providing back-to-school essentials for the past five years.

The Leadfoot Foundation enjoys strong partners with Pepsi and the U.S. Army; however it relies on the community to assist in their efforts. “The Driving Excellence charity event is the platform we use to ensure youth have the necessities to perform in the classroom. It is essential for everyone in a position to give, to bring $10 or more in unopened school supplies to the event to assist those in need,” said an emphatic Olatunji.

This year’s event will take place from noon until 5 pm on Saturday, September 17th at the Lighthouse on Belle Isle Park.

The Leadfoot Foundation has assembled a team of volunteers who are enthusiastic about serving each and every young person with school supplies to begin their school year. Olatunji continued, “We have our sights on continuing to grow this event. Ultimately, we want this event to be known as THE SCHOOLS SUPPLIES DRIVE of the City of Detroit. I am adamant about giving back especially given I am a proud Detroiter and a product of Detroit Public Schools!”

In addition to the collection and distribution of school supplies there will be a live DJ, hot rods on display, exotic motorcycles, face painting as well as five new 2012 Chrysler vehicles. Gleaners Community Food Bank has also been gracious to provide snacks for the young people to enjoy. The event provides an opportunity for the community to interact with each other through activities such as a kids station while benefiting with essential back-to-school supplies.

For more details as well as a place to donate, please visit The Leadfoot Foundation’s website at: www.leadfootfoundation.org.

Taking Flight: Brian O Jumps with U.S. Army Golden Knights!


August 10th, 2011 in News by



On a clear Detroit morning, just one day after the U.S. Army’s 236th birthday, Brian Olatunji took flight with the Golden Knights. It was a long wait for Brian O, who was previously scheduled to jump with the U.S. Army’s Parachute Team last fall until the worst Midwest storm cell in over 30 years kept the plane and Brian O’s skydiving ambitions grounded.

The Golden Knights is the U.S. Army’s official aerial demonstration team. Made up of real Soldiers the team travels around the United States performing demonstrations at major events connecting the Army with the American people. Taking Brian O on his wild ride were members of Team Tandem, who have jumped from a plane with everyone from former president George H. W. Bush to sports stars and actors such as Tiger Woods and Chuck Norris. Ensuring Brian’s enjoyment and safety on his aerial adventure were Airborne Rangers SSG Aaron Figel and SSG Reese Pendleton. After taking off from Selfridge Air Force Base, SSG Figel freefell with Brian O while SSG Pendleton caught all the action on camera. With Lake St. Claire as a backdrop Brian O and the Golden Knights free feel thousands of feet towards Michigan below.

Brian O was thrilled at the opportunity, “Exhilarating is the only way to describe the experience! Certainly something I would do again in a heartbeat! The Golden Knights are the best in the world and their professionalism is second to none. After all, SSG Pendleton hung outside of the aircraft like passenger 57 and was able to capture my enthusiasm and experience while free falling from 14,000 feet above the earth. Awesomeness!!!”
