Jeremy Clements Racing Lands Dover Sponsor
Jeremy Clements Racing and the Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) are teaming up at Dover International Speedway in the Hisense 200 Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 to remind fans to Drive Sober and Arrive Alive. OHS is challenging fans to make smart choices and plan ahead when deciding how to get home after a party or happy hour. Jeremy’s #51 Chevrolet Camaro SS Team Clements “Drive Sober” car theme and message will be promoting alternative ways of getting home besides driving after drinking, such as taking a taxi, Uber, Lyft, calling a sober friend, or taking public transit. Jeremy has two career Top 10s in 10 career starts at the Monster Mile with the last one coming earlier this year.
Race weekend at Dover Speedway the OHS will be reminding fans that driving under the influence of alcohol is not only dangerous, it’s illegal. OHS will have a interactive display in the Monster Mile fanzone where race fans can pledge to either always drive sober or be a designated driver. Fans can test and compare their motor skills against Jeremy in various games such as simulated impaired cornhole and the impaired tricycle track. Jeremy Clements will also make guest appearances at the display to meet with fans and sign autographs. Prizes such as Team Clements Drive Sober t-shirts and lanyards will be given away to those fans who participate in weekend activities.
OHS is now in its fifteenth year, Checkpoint Strikeforce is a six-month statewide enforcement campaign that features an increased number of DUI checkpoints and patrols every weekend from July 1 through December 31. The goal of Checkpoint Strikeforce is to stop impaired driving throughout Delaware. Any driver who fails a field sobriety test and is found to be over Delaware’s Blood Alcohol Concentration Limit of .08 will face severe legal and financial consequences. There is no leniency for first-time offenders. In fact, just one DUI can change your life. The OHS wants everyone to drive safe and Arrive Alive.
