COLONIAL PIPELINE AGREES TO SPONSOR 811 DIG SAFELY CRATE/SPORTSMAN AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY IN 2014

 

Sicklerville, NJ (March 30, 2014) – Colonial Pipeline, the owner of a network of pipelines connecting Gulf Coast refineries with markets across the South and Eastern United States, has agreed to sponsor the 811 Dig Safely Crate/Sportsman at Bridgeport Speedway in 2014. “We are very pleased to be sponsoring the division at Bridgeport Speedway and naming it the 811 Dig Safely Crate/Sportsman for the forthcoming racing season. As the track is only eight miles from our office in Woodbury, NJ, it made perfect sense to partner with them,” said John Gentzler, Operations Area Manager for Colonial Pipeline.  

 

As a leader in the industry, Colonial Pipeline’s vast network spans 5,500 miles and connects refineries in the Gulf Coast areas with markets across the South and Eastern United States. Their large system safely transports gasoline, diesel fuels, jet fuel, home heating oil, U.S. military fuels and other refined petroleum products. Through their sponsorship with Bridgeport Speedway, Colonial Pipeline will be promoting and raising awareness of 811, the national “Call Before You Dig” phone number. “Whether it is a small job like planting a tree or a larger project, all digging jobs require a call. If someone should hit an underground utility or pipeline while digging, they could not only harm themselves but could cause harm to their neighborhood and be responsible for costly fines and repairs,” stated Gentzler. In New Jersey, the law requires anyone digging to call at least three full business days (not counting weekends or holidays), before beginning work.  This includes professional excavators as well as property and home owners.  Through Colonial Pipeline, Bridgeport Speedway will be providing information on the importance of the 811 system and this will include activities during the month of April, which is the National Safe Digging Month.

 

The 811 Dig Safely Crate/Sportsman will be in action on every Saturday night at Bridgeport Speedway including the regular season opener on April 12. Bridgeport Speedway provides a safe and secure family atmosphere, free parking, giveaways and fan participation games. Billed ‘The Fastest Dirt Track in the East’, Bridgeport Speedway is a banked 5/8th mile dirt oval, featuring a dirt 1/4 mile oval embedded in the center, and is located in Southern New Jersey -- just minutes from Pennsylvania and Delaware at exit 14 off of I-295.
