In Sunday’s GEICO 400 at Chicagoland Speedway, Chase driver Kevin Harvick will sport a “Designate a Driver” paint scheme on his No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet, in support of Anheuser-Busch’s “Global Be(er) Responsble Day” on Sept. 21.

The paint scheme promotes Budweiser’s initiative to encourage adults to drink responsibly and to pledge to do so through the web site www.nationofresponsibledrinkers.com. Harvick himself has taken the pledge.

“For me to take the pledge to be a responsible drinker, it’s very easy, because in my profession, in what I do, there’s no room for error,” Harvick said. “Off the race track, there’s no room for error either… When you’re drinking and having a good time, don’t take it for granted.

“Go out, get a designated driver, call a taxi. It’s very easy to make it simple, have a good time and go home safe.”
