Kevin Harvick participates in TMS 9/11 event
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (AP) - NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick joined first-responders from Texas and Oklahoma for a Sept. 11 tribute to those who served the region and those who died.
The event Wednesday at Texas Motor Speedway honored 44 first-responders. Among them were those who served communities devastated by tornadoes this year in Moore, Okla., and Granbury, Texas, as well as by a fertilizer plant explosion in the Central Texas town of West.
Harvick is the son of a retired 25-year veteran firefighter in Bakersfield, Calif. The Sprint Cup Series driver is scheduled to race in the Texas 500 on Nov. 3.
The event marked the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
