Monitronics Revs Up Support for NASCAR Race Team in Wake of Fire Losses
Monitronics partners with Leavine Family Racing after it lost four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race cars in a facility fire.
CONCORD, N.C. – As Leavine Family Racing (LFR) resumes operations in its shop following a fire that caused significant damage in early May, Monitronics Security announces a new partnership with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race team.
Monitronics will outfit the refurbished facility with a new, state-of-the-art security and fire monitoring system. In addition, Monitronics will be featured as an associate on the team’s No. 95 Ford Fusion at Chicago, Charlotte and Texas NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race weekends.
Four race cars were destroyed in the fire at the LFR shop along with a 3,000 square-foot room full of parts and equipment. No one was injured in the fire, and the team’s primary cars were located in another part of the race shop, allowing driver Michael McDowell and the No. 95 team to continue to race.
“We are thrilled that Monitronics has offered to help us as we move back in and continue operations in our shop in Concord,” says Bob Leavine, team owner. “The fire was certainly a setback for our team, but we saw significant support from the NASCAR community – including our partners and fans. This partnership with Monitronics is another example of that support to help us continue operations with a state-of-the-art security and fire monitoring system.”
LFR’s new system will include cameras throughout the facility, video recording, fire and heat detection, and 24-hour monitoring.
“The incident reminds us all about how important fire safety is, whether it’s in a facility like the Leavine Family Racing shop or at someone’s home,” says Monitronics Senior Vice President of Operations Bruce Mungiguerra. “We’re proud to provide effective fire detection that can not only help keep property damage to a minimum, but also potentially avoid injuries and save lives.”
