For the first time, Shell and the Common Ground Alliance are expanding their joint safe digging initiative to include the Watkins Glen race, which falls during the weekend of National Safe Digging Day. The No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil car will feature a new “811 promise” logo, representing a request for fans to pledge that they will call 811 before undertaking home digging projects.
A quick and easy call to 811 can help avoid damage to pipelines and help reduce the potential of a serious injury to yourself and others. For these reasons, Shell and the Common Ground Alliance are encouraging fans to make a promise to always call 811 before digging.
Fans that visit www.racetosouthbeach.com beginning August 10 and make the pledge will be entered to win a VIP Race Weekend in South Beach during the final race of the season, and will be eligible for other prizes, such as Shell gift cards.
