Drive Sober Campaign Featured On The 7 Car

Drive Sober Chevrolet Camaro

Regan Smith’s No. 7 Chevrolet will raise awareness for a special cause this weekend in the form of the Delaware Office of Highway Safety’s (OHS) Drive Sober Campaign. The OHS combats fatal, alcohol-related crashes through education and enforcement. As part of the enforcement initiative, a Checkpoint Strikeforce, which consists of a DUI enforcement campaign, is put in place utilizing DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols throughout the state of Delaware.

 “Dover is big and fast, but it has a lot of the characteristics of a short track. You spend a lot of time in the corners so that’s what will make or break you. Things happen extremely quickly, so sometimes it’s difficult during the race to get settled in. But there is no denying that running around a high-banked, one-mile track in 23 seconds is a lot of fun.

“We’re grateful to have the Drive Sober Campaign on board with us this weekend. Anytime our team can get behind and support such a good cause, it’s a privilege. We’ll do everything we can to help them raise awareness around DUI’s and the life-saving work their strikeforce is doing.”

The Checkpoint Strikeforce has been making a huge difference in Delaware, helping citizens “arrive alive” for the past 13 years. Last year officers participating in the 2012 campaign made 350 DUI arrests, apprehending 86 wanted persons in the process from campaign checkpoints and patrols. All totaled, more than 5,400 people were arrested for DUI in Delaware alone in 2012. For more information on the Drive Sober campaign, log on to or follow the OHS on twitter @DEHighwaySafe.

Fans can visit the Drive Sober display, located in the fan concourse on Saturday, Sept. 28, for a Regan Smith autograph and Q & A session from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET.

Smith and the 7 team will bring chassis No. 774 to Dover. Smith owns two top-five and four top-10 finishes with this chassis in the five races (California, Charlotte, Kentucky, Las Vegas and Richmond II) it’s competed in this year.
