Responsible race fans earned valuable rewards at the Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway on October 2, 2016. The track, Busch and TEAM Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at Dover International Speedway.
Before the race, 242 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 NASCAR Cup Series™ race at Dover International Speedway on June 4, 2017.
The Designated Driver for the Race from the 2016 AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway, Christine Swiker, received her Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes prize on Sunday – two tickets and a VIP behind-the-scenes experience before the race.
US DOT / NHTSA 2015 NATIONAL DATA:
•10,265 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an increase of 3.2% from the 9,943 fatalities in 2014.
• 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.
