INTERNATIONAL NEWS BY K H RYS A N N E K E R R, CG A , V P OF COM M U N ICAT IONS/ PROGR A M DE V E LOPM E N T 811 Logo to be Featured at NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Races this Year THIS DIGGING SEASON, NASCAR fans will be seeing plenty of the 811 logo on the racetrack. Driver Joey Logano will man the No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion in the Sprint Cup Series for Penske Racing in 2013 in support of safe digging practices. NASCAR is one of the primary ways CGA reaches the digging public, due to CGA research that indicates half of homeowners who plan to dig each year either attended a NASCAR race or watched one on TV during the previous year. Thanks to Shell Pipeline Company, a Platinum Sponsor of CGA, Logano’s no. 22 car will also be sporting the 811 logo on its decklid and camera panel at three Sprint Cup races during National Safe Digging Month this April. Be sure to tune in to each of the three races, taking place in Martinsville, Va., on April 7; Fort Worth, Texas, on April 13; and Richmond, Va., on April 27. Check your local TV listings for broadcast information. NASCAR fans will also see the 811 logo promoted on Logano’s no. 22 decklid at the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway in California on June 23, courtesy of Shell. To round off the digging season, driver Greg Biffle will display the 811 logo on the decklid, lower hood, camera panel and rocker panels of his no. 16 3M Ford Fusion on 8/11 Day (August 11) at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, N.Y., courtesy of 3M. Racing fans and sports aficionados will certainly be exposed to the call-before-you-dig message thanks to CGA’s alliance with both Shell and 3M. Additional promotions with auto racing will be announced later this spring and summer, so stay tuned. ■ S P R I N G 13 9 http://www.orcga.com
