811 Takes Center Stage at Call811.com Before You Dig 250

In the middle of National Safe Digging Month (NSDM), 811 will be on display in front of millions of NASCAR fans across the country during the Call811.com Before You Dig 250! The race, set to be held on Saturday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. EDT at the Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Va., will be an excellent opportunity for the safe digging message to reach contractors and the general public during National Safe Digging Month.

Several 811 centers, utility owners, locators and other industry organizations have partnered to make 811 the title sponsor of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Call811.com Before You Dig 250. This partnership across damage prevention stakeholder groups is an excellent example of how our various industries can share in the responsibility to protect buried infrastructure, and we’re grateful for these damage prevention partners’ commitment to sharing this vital safety message.
