Jeff Gordon Chevrolet & 2012 Chevy Youth Baseball

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet offers Wilmington a "Dream" chance at a baseball field makeover!

Wilmington, NC – Jeff Gordon Chevrolet announced today its continued support of Wilmington youth baseball and baseball fans through the Chevrolet "Diamonds & Dreams" program. Jeff Gordon Chevrolet encourages residents to register online at for a chance to win one of 12 field makeovers and the grand prize of an all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco.*

Starting today, participants can enter through for a chance to win a refurbished baseball field for their community or another community they feel is deserving. One winner will be chosen each week for up to 12 weeks through July 22.

"Every young person wants and deserves a 'dream' baseball diamond, and we offer them a chance to get one," said General Sales Manager Rudy Carter, for Jeff Gordon Chevrolet .

In its third year, "Diamonds & Dreams" has already awarded 25 youth field makeovers across the country.

"From the backyards to the big leagues, Chevrolet is committed to community and youth baseball and giving back to where our customers live, work and play," said Phil Caruso, Chevrolet National Promotions Manager.

Renovations of the 12 field makeovers will be administered through Ripken Design, a division of Ripken Baseball, the company owned and operated by National Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr., and 12-year Major League Baseball® veteran Bill Ripken.

"I have been working with Chevy for about two decades and it is a relationship that I value a great deal, said Cal Ripken. "Together we are positively impacting kids through baseball at the grassroots level and giving them safe places to play. It is a very gratifying part of what we do, and I appreciate Chevrolet making us a part of this terrific effort."

The Official Lawn Care Company of Major League Baseball®, Scotts®, will continue to partner with Chevrolet and lend its support on multiple field refurbishments. Scotts believes that it is important to offer youth a safe, reliable field and playing area. In addition to helping reduce injuries, a strong foundation of thick and lush grass helps to create a beautiful outdoor environment that encourages children to spend time outdoors.

As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball®, Chevrolet has also expanded its support of MLB® to youth baseball players in communities across the country through the Chevrolet Youth Baseball (CYB) program. In its seventh year, CYB has helped raise more than $13 million to aid local teams, affecting more than 2.7 million young people in communities across the country. This year, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers are participating.

Efficient Driving Tips

Slow Down - Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph.Limit Idling - Idling for 15 minutes can burn 1/4 gallon of fuel.

Drive Sensibly - Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and braking) can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and by 5 percent around town.

Use Cruise Control - Using cruise control on the highway helps you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, will save gas.

Use the Right Oil - Because oil reduces engine friction and friction makes an engine work harder, using the manufacturer's recommended grade of oil improves fuel economy by 1-2 percent.

Plan and Combine Trips - Combining errands into one trip saves time and money. Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much fuel as a longer multi-purpose trip covering the same distance when the engine is warm.

Chevrolet Fuel Solution TechnologiesExtended Range Electric Vehicles - Use battery power for propulsion.
Hybrid Technology - Use a combination of battery power and gas engine for propulsion.
Direct Injection - Injects fuel directly into the combustion chambers to ensure the precise amount of fuel is used at the precise moment it is needed for improved fuel economy.
Variable Valve Timing - Improves fuel economy and performance by controlling intake and exhaust valve openings so that it occurs at the optimum moment, increasing efficiency across the entire operating range of the engine.
6-speed Transmissions - Offer more gear ratios to keep the engine in its most efficient operating range.
Active Fuel Management - Engine management system that enables the engine to automatically operate on half its cylinders under light load conditions, improving fuel efficiency and reducing fuel consumption (V8).

The 2014 Chevrolet Impala
How does a legend that runs more than 50 years deep become the pinnacle of style, innovation and performance for the next generation? The answer lies in the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala.

Impala has always been a flagship for Chevrolet. But a leader should never rest on the laurels of its past — especially when it wears the Chevy bowtie. So, when it came time to reinvent one of the brand’s most iconic nameplates, Chevy designers and engineers reached far into the future and shaped it in the present. The end result is a stunning new interpretation of the Impala that’s only recognizable by its signature badge.
No one wants to sacrifice power for fuel efficiency. That’s why the 2014 Impala will offer three engine choices to suit your needs: the available 303-horsepower 3.6L V6 engine that goes from 0 to 60 in 6.8 seconds and offers 28 MPG on the highway, the standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 31 MPG on the highway and 195 horsepower, and the 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with E-assist that delivers and estimated 35 MPG on the highway and 182 horsepower. Either way, enhanced driving dynamics and premium rack-mounted electric power steering make for a nimble, responsive ride.
The 2014 Impala is equipped with the newest Chevrolet MyLink™4 in-car infotainment system, which seamlessly integrates Bluetooth®5 wireless for select phones, advanced touch-screen technology and natural voice recognition. It allows drivers to make calls, stream music from online services like Pandora,®6 operate USB7-connected devices —and so much more — with ease. They can even customize the high-resolution 8-inch color touch-screen for quicker access to the features they use most. It’s advanced technology that makes connectivity a whole lot simpler.
Impala also gets numerous safety enhancements for 2014. Its structure incorporates more high-strength steel than before along with 10 standard air bags8 to help mitigate the impact of a collision. Advanced safety technologies are also available, including Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and Full-Speed Range Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Mitigation Braking,9 Rear Park Assist with Rearview Camera and Side Blind Zone Alert with Cross-Traffic Radar Alert. These available features proactively help protect against the unexpected.
“The momentum at Chevrolet continues to build with the debut of the 10th generation of the Impala, one of the brand’s most enduring and cherished nameplates,” says Chris Perry, vice president of Global Chevrolet Marketing. “The new Impala further strengthens Chevrolet’s passenger car lineup by giving consumers a full-size sedan that balances the desire for distinction with engaging driving dynamics.”
