Responsible Fans Rewarded at Atlanta Motor Speedway

03/06/2017

For the first time, Atlanta Motor Speedway, NASCAR and TEAM Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 on March 5, 2017.

Before the race, 171 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, 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 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™ race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

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 and the fans. Teamwork is what this campaign is all about. We are demonstrating that when everyone takes responsibility, everyone wins.Jill Pepper, Executive Director, TEAM Coalition

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.
