Responsible NASCAR Fans Rewarded at Chicagoland Speedway

07/02/2018

Responsible race fans earned valuable rewards at Chicagoland Speedway for the three days of NASCAR racing on June 29, 30 and July 1, 2018. Miller Lite and TEAM Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at the track.

717 fans made the pledge to Hold True and Get Home Safely. All of them had the opportunity to receive a free souvenir photo, instant prizes and a chance to be selected as the Designated Driver of the Race. One randomly selected responsible fan will win the Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes. The grand prize includes two tickets and two VIP experiences to the next Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Chicagoland Speedway.

Over the three-day event, 436 photos were taken in front of the responsibility wall featuring Brad Keslowski and the Stars Stripes and Lites Ford #2 that each fan autographed as their pledge never to drive drunk. The photos have been shared 1,750 times via social media, an average of 4 views per photo.

We believe that with great beer comes great responsibility, and we’re thrilled to partner with NASCAR, Chicagoland Speedway and TEAM Coalition to help promote responsibility at the track. For many legal drinking age fans, enjoying a beer on race day is part of the NASCAR experience, and we want to encourage fans to enjoy the race responsibly and plan ahead for a safe ride home from the track.Diane Wagner, Responsibility Commerce Manager, MillerCoors
The success of the Responsibility Has Its Rewards campaign is a direct result of the commitment from our members and all the designated-driver program partners, including the tracks, beer companies and state offices of highway safety. Teamwork is what this campaign is all about. We are demonstrating that when everyone – including the fans – takes responsibility, everyone wins.Jill Pepper, Executive Director, TEAM Coalition

US DOT / NHTSA 2016 NATIONAL DATA:

• In 2016, 10,497 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an increase of 1.7% from the 10,265 fatalities in 2015.

• Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.

• Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash, drive when impaired by alcohol, and fail to buckle up.
