Did you know that April is National Safe Digging Month? Well, it is and if you’re going to plant a tree (Earth Day was last weekend, but it’s still a good idea to plant a tree!) you should call 811 to make sure you don’t put yourself or others in danger.
And now you’re saying “What heck does this have to do with NASCAR and why should I care?” Well, thanks to Shell I get to give away a 1:24 Action Racing Collectibles A.J. Allmendinger 2012 Shell Pennzoil #22 Charger diecast (ARV: $85). Yay! Use the form below to enter for your chance to win! The contest ends on Monday, April 30, 2012.
The deets about National Safe Digging Month:
April is National Safe Digging Month, and Shell, Penske and the Common Ground Alliance have teamed up to encourage people to take the proper precautions before beginning their warm-weather projects. Driver AJ Allmendinger will display the 811 national “Call Before You Dig” hotline logo on the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Dodge throughout the month.
All digging requires a call to 811, even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. When somebody starts a digging project without calling 811, they run the risk of damaging pipelines, which may cause serious personal injury or harm to those in close proximity. Additionally, an individual can be held financially responsible for repairs if they don’t call 811 and damage a pipeline while digging. For more information, visit www.Call811.com.
The contest is over. Thank you for participating!
