Before the race, 113 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, a bottle of Aquafina water, 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 October Sprint Cup Series™ race at Dover International Speedway.

The Designated Driver for the Race from the October 4, 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ race at Dover International Speedway, Richard Clark, received his Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes prize on Sunday - two tickets and a VIP behind-the-scenes experience before the race.

“While we want every fan that comes to Dover International Speedway to enjoy things as much as they can, safety is always the top priority,” Michael Tatoian, president and CEO of Dover International Speedway. “With that in mind, the fans that chose to serve as designated drivers for their family or friends this past weekend should be commended.”

“Anheuser-Busch has led our industry in promoting responsible drinking for more than 30 years and the Busch designated driver program reminds fans who choose to drink, to do so responsibly and get their friends home safely,” said Katja Zastrow, VP of CSR-Better World at Anheuser-Busch. “We all share the same streets after the race. This partnership with Dover International Speedway, TEAM and the fans displays our collective responsibility to help keep our roads safe.”

"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 beer companies," 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."
