TEXAS MOTORPLEX AND NHRA CELEBRATE FIRST RESPONDERS
DALLAS, Texas (September 29, 2017) – Every day hundreds of brave men and women put their lives on the line to keep their fellow citizens safe and to pull them out of harm’s way. Throughout the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season the sanctioning body and many of its member tracks have been celebrating and recognizing these brave individuals. During the 32nd annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, October 12-15, the Texas Motorplex will be joining in honoring these unsung heroes with a variety of events and promotions.
The biggest benefit offered will be continuing to pay tribute to the legion of first responders, the heroes who are among the first people to arrive and assist at the scene of an emergency with a ticket discount. This group includes medical professionals, law-enforcement officers, firefighters, members of the armed forces, and a number of other professions charged with the safety and well-being of the public, much like the Safety Safari is charged with the safety and well-being of the racing community. As part of the tribute, first responders will be eligible for discounted tickets to the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals through GovX. Click here to purchase.
“The ticket discount is the least we can do for these heroes. Whether they are representing the police or fire departments in Ennis, Waxahachie, Dallas and Ft Worth or protecting our freedoms around the world in the armed services these people deserve our appreciation and by standing with our hand over our heart during our sacred National Anthem we also show how much we respect them and our Flag” said Texas Motorplex owner and president Billy Meyer.
In addition to the ticket discount the Motorplex will be hosting the Dallas Police Choir on Sunday morning of race day when they sing the national anthem. First responders will also be recognized and join in with NHRA drivers and fans in the Sealmaster track walk on Sunday morning. During the race day between round the NHRA will salute the first responders and NHRA Safety Safari with a parade of vehicles and personnel offering the thousands of fans in attendance the chance to show their appreciation.
Professional qualifying will begin on Friday, October 13 with two sessions and continue on Saturday, October 14. Final eliminations for the fourth race of the Countdown to the Championship will begin at 11 a.m. on Sunday, October 15.
