Monitronics Forges Partnership with NASCAR Race Team

As Leavine Family Racing resumes operations in its shop following a fire that caused significant damage in early May, Monitronics Security is pleased to announce a 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,” said 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.”

Monitronics has provided home security and monitoring for more than 20 years, and has rapidly become an industry leader in home automation. It’s the second-largest residential security and home automation provider nationwide, with more than 1 million customers. The new system at Leavine Family Racing 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,” said 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.”
