Responsible fans earned valuable rewards at Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway. The track, Busch and TEAM Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety.
Before the race, 113 fans made the pledge to be the designated driver for their group. All of them had the opportunity to receive a free souvenir photo, instant prizes, a bottle of Aquafina water, and a chance to be selected as the Designated Driver for the race. One randomly selected, responsible fan will win the Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes. The grand prize includes two tickets and a VIP experience for two at the October Sprint Cup Series™ race at Dover International Speedway.
The Designated Driver for the Race from the October 4, 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ race at Dover International Speedway, Richard Clark, received his Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes prize on Sunday – two tickets and a VIP behind-the-scenes experience before the race.
US DOT / NHTSA 2014 NATIONAL DATA:
• In 2014, 9,967 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, a decrease of 1% from the 10,076 fatalities in 2013.
• 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.
