Monitronics partners with NASCAR Team
CONCORD, N.C.—Monitronics and the Leavine Family Racing shop, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race team, have partnered to get the shop up and running again after an early May fire damaged the facility.
Monitronics will outfit the refurbished site with a security and fire monitoring system, including cameras throughout, video recording, fire and heat detection and 24-hour monitoring.
Monitroincs will be featured as an associate on the team’s No. 95 Ford Fusion at Chicago, Charlotte and Texas NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races.
“We are thrilled that Monitronics has offered to help us as we move back in and continue operations in our shop in Concord,” said Bob Leavine, the team’s owner, in a prepared statement.
Four race cars were destroyed in the fire, 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.
“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,” Monitronics SVP of operations Bruce Mungiguerra said in a prepared statement.
