As the 2016 NASCAR season came to its exciting conclusion, Busch, Eagle Brands, Americrown and TEAM Coalition partnered once again to reward responsible fans during Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Before the Ford EcoBoost 300 on Saturday, November 19, 2016 and the Ford EcoBoost 400 on Sunday, November 20, 2016, 446 fans made the pledge to be a Busch Good Sport – the designated driver for their group. All of them had the opportunity to receive a free souvenir photo, instant prizes, 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 grand prize, which includes two tickets and a VIP experience for two at next year’s Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, which will be held November 19, 2017.
The Designated Driver for the Race from last season, Lamar Baber, received a pair of tickets and a behind-the-scenes experience for himself and a guest before the Ford EcoBoost 400.
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.
