    LONG BEACH, Calif., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- It was billed as "the battle of the sexes" and it lived up to expectations, as BMX champion Dave Mirra crossed the finish line in his race-ready Scion tC ahead of Tennis Hall of Famer Martina Navratilova and actor Joshua Morrow, star of "The Young & The Restless," to take the crown in the 2007 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race. NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) Champion Mike Skinner finished first in the Pro category.

    Toyota will donate $5,000 to "Racing for Kids" in the name of each celebrity racer, and another $5,000 to the winner's charity of choice.

    Racing for Kids is a non-profit program benefiting Children's Hospital of Orange County and Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach, Calif.
    On behalf of the race and its participants, Toyota has donated close to $1.5 million to various children's organizations since 1991.

    Additionally, a $15,000 donation was made in conjunction with the annual "PEOPLE Pole Award." Sponsored by PEOPLE magazine, the award honored Dave Mirra, this year's pole-position winner of the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race qualifying session. Mirra selected the Multiple Sclerosis Society as his charity, in honor of Haley Harrington, the sister of a good friend of Mirra's who has MS.

    The Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race will be broadcast on Speed Channel, Saturday, April 28, at 2:30 p.m. EDT.
