Responsible race fans earned valuable rewards at Chicagoland Speedway for the three days of NASCAR racing on June 28-30th, 2019. Miller Lite and TEAM Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at the track.
812 fans made the pledge to never drink and drive and always have a designated driver. 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, 501 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 viewed 827 times via social media, an average of 1.7 views per photo.
US DOT / NHTSA 2017 NATIONAL DATA:
• In 2017, 10,874 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, a decrease of 1.1% from the 10,996 fatalities in 2016.
• 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.
