Loudon, NH, July 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Loudon, NH - (07/16/2012) - Responsible NASCAR fans earned valuable rewards at Sunday's Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Miller Lite, Amoskeag Beverages and Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management (TEAM) Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
357 fans made the pledge to be a 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 of the Race. One responsible fan - Pamela Pugsley of Hiram, Maine - was randomly selected as the Designated Driver for the Race. Ms. Pugsley is the grand prize winner of the Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes. The grand prize includes a Miller Lite outdoor lounge set, along with two tickets and two hot passes to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sylvania 300 race on September 23, 2012, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
"We applaud those who signed the pledge to be a designated driver for their group during race weekend at NHMS," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager for New Hampshire Motor Speedway. "It's important for everyone to be responsible when choosing to consume alcohol while enjoying the race weekend."
"At MillerCoors, we believe that with great beer comes great responsibility and we're thrilled to partner with New Hampshire Motor Speedway and TEAM Coalition to help promote responsible alcohol consumption at the track," said Diane Wagner, responsibility manager at MillerCoors. "For many fans, enjoying a beer on race day is part of the NASCAR experience, and we want to encourage fans to enjoy the race responsibly and plan ahead for a safe ride home from the track."
"We are very proud of the great beers we sell for all of the NASCAR fans to consume," said Ed Murphy, General Manager and Vice President of Sales, Amoskeag Beverages LLC. "However, along with that comes great responsibility. We thank all of you for choosing a designated driver and look forward to seeing you all at the track again in September."
"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, beer companies and wholesalers," said Jill Pepper, executive director of TEAM Coalition. "Teamwork is what this campaign is all about. We are demonstrating that when everyone - including the fans - takes responsibility, everyone wins."
