(May 05, 2014)

Talladega, Alabama, May 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Responsible NASCAR fans earned valuable rewards at Sunday's

promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at Talladega
Superspeedway.

TEAM Coalition, Miller Lite and Talladega Super Speedway partner to encourage race fans to always have a designated driver.




Before Denny Hamlin's victory on Sunday, 226 fans made the
pledge to be a designated driver for their group. All of them had
the opportunity to receive a free souvenir photo and enter for a
chance to be selected as the Designated Driver of the Race. One
randomly selected, responsible fan will win 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 GEICO 500 on October 19th race at Talladega
Superspeedway.

The Designated Driver for the Race from the October 20, 2013
Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega
Superspeedway, Lucinda Starlene Belew,
received two tickets and two hot passes to the May 4th
race. Belew and her guest enjoyed a behind-the-scenes experience
before the race on Sunday. 

 "We applaud those who signed the pledge to be a designated
driver for their group during race weekend at DEGA," said
Grant Lynch, Chairman of Talladega Superspeedway.
"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 Talladega
Superspeedway and TEAM Coalition to help promote responsible
alcohol consumption at the track," said Diane
Wagner
, responsibility commerce manager for 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."

"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 state offices of highway safety," 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."
