Musician Akon’s interest in cars has prompted him to form Akon Motor Sports during the 2013 NASCAR season. Akon has signed renowned race car driver Joe Henderson III to lead his Akon Motor Sports team, with Henderson competing in the NASCAR PRO SERIES EAST race at Langley Speedway in VA. On June 22nd.
“I got into motor sports because I’ve always had a love for cars,” said Akon in a press release. Cars were always something that gave me that excitement and that rush for life,” he added. “That was what really motivated me to get into motor sports.”
Love is a many splendored thing — but it can also cause car accidents.

Celebrity photographer Thad of ExclusiveAccess.net spotted reality TV star and business woman Shekinah Jo cruising around Atlanta in her brand new BMW X6. Shekinah recently launched her “I Work Hard” t-shirt line which is doing quite well. And she’s one of the reasons why the ratings for VH1’s “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle” are going through the roof.
Unlike Skylar Diggins, Shekinah doesn’t need a rapper to purchase a car or a home for her. Shekinah is totally independent and self-sufficient. She works hard, b*tch!
To a businessman like Jay Z, gifting a Mercedes Benz to one of his employees is simply a tax write off. But to a star-struck groupie who just graduated from college, a Mercedes Benz is a pretty big deal.
Jay Z surprised former Notre Dame women’s basketball star Skylar Diggins with a Mercedes Benz C class automobile. Prices for a C class Mercedes start at $35,000.

Celebrity blog TMZ has the details:
Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina has miraculously emerged unscathed after wrecking her Chevy Camaro in a frightening car crash moments ago … TMZ has learned.
The accident just went down in Alpharetta, Georgia — law enforcement tells us a passer-by noticed Bobbi’s car all smashed up in an embankment and called 911.
When emergency personnel arrived at the scene, Bobbi Kristina was standing next to her vehicle and appeared to be uninjured.
Cops conducted an official accident investigation — and believe Bobbi Kristina simply lost control of her car while making a left turn out of her apartment complex … and drove over a curb and down an embankment, striking several small trees along the way.
Eventually, the car came to a stop on a local park trail.
After the investigation, cops issued BK a traffic citation for “failure to maintain lane.”
Cops say … it doesn’t appear drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
