Again in 2014, Shell and the Common Ground Alliance will raise awareness for 811, the national “Call Before You Dig” hotline, via the sponsorship between Shell and Team Penske.
The No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion car will sport the 811 logo at all three races during National Safe Digging Month in April, as well as races in Bristol, TN on August 23 and Phoenix on November 9, and the All-Star Race in Charlotte on May 17.
As part of the ongoing educational effort, the Common Ground Alliance will give one race fan the chance for a weekend of a lifetime with the “Fly Away to Phoenix” sweepstakes.
One lucky fan and a guest will win a grand prize trip to the Quicken Loans 400 at Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, AZ on November 9, 2014 to see Joey Logano display the Call 811 logo on the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion car up close and in person.
Fans can enter at www.flyawaytophoenix.com and read the official rules. No purchase necessary. Sweepstakes ends August 31, 2014.
Even small projects like planting trees or shrubs require a call to 811. The quick and easy call will connect you with a local One Call Center operator who will record information about your dig location and notify the underground facility operators so they can mark the approximate location of any underground utilities and pipelines. Once the lines are marked, you can begin to dig, but always dig with care.
