ISM Raceway introduces ‘know before you go’

ISM Raceway announced Arizona 811 as a promotional partner for the ISM Raceway “Know Before You Go” Quick Links webpage, providing fans with important information about race day events before heading out to the track for the Bluegreen Vacations 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Semi-Final Weekend. 

Providing fans with a guide to the perfect weekend at ISM Raceway, “Know Before You Go” Quick Links, brought to you by Arizona 811 offers fans with easy access to facility maps, fan schedules, gate policies, camping information, driver appearances and more. 

“Our ‘Know Before You Go’ Quick Links brought to you by Arizona 811 is a user friendly page that race fans can access before and throughout the entire Bluegreen Vacations 500 Weekend,” said ISM Raceway President Julie Giese. “There is a lot of activity throughout the entire weekend for our fans such as driver appearances, autograph signings and new displays like our 2020 NASCAR Championship Experience in the Midway, and Quick Links provides fans with all of this information in one location.”

As a promotional partner, Arizona 811 looks forward to educating the public about the need to “Know What’s Below” by calling 811 or clicking at least two working days before any digging project to learn the approximate location of buried lines in the area. Doing so can help prevent injuries, property damage, damage to underground utilities, inconvenient outages and potentially costly repairs.

“We are thrilled to partner with ISM Raceway to highlight the importance for homeowners and contractors to always call 811 or click prior to starting any digging project large or small,” said Sandra Holmes, Executive Director of Arizona 811.  “We’re always looking for fresh ways of promoting the importance of using the 811 process before digging and this partnership will spread our message to thousands of Arizona residents in an exciting atmosphere at ISM Raceway.” 

“Having been involved in underground construction for over 20 years, and in the oil and gas industry for the past 12 years, safety is the number one priority,” said Brice Box, a Right of Way Specialist for Kinder Morgan and owner of a petroleum pipeline throughout Arizona. “By partnering with ISM Raceway, we can reach thousands of homeowners and contractors and further educate the importance of following Arizona state law. By contacting Arizona 811 and giving utility companies a chance to mark their underground facilities, everyone will ‘Know what is below’ and stay safe while they dig.” Box also serves as the Chairperson for the Arizona811 Education & Awareness Committee.
