Racing for First Responders, a race team out of Indianapolis, will be running with the Vores Compact Touring Series at Toledo Speedway June 14, 2019 on Whelen First Responders Night. Racing for First Responders will give tribute to fallen Toledo Firefighters Stephen A. Machcinski and James A. Dickman.
Both Firefighters perished in a structure fire on January 26, 2014. Photos of each Firefighter will be secured in the #67 Racing for First Responders Vores Compact car with owner/driver Rob Rehm while on the track for Whelen First Responders Night at Toledo Speedway.
Racing for First Responders is a charity created to help families of fallen first responders, and to remember the sacrifices they made for their communities. “Carrying a photo in the car of a line of duty death first responder at every race is something I started doing after my brother perished in an accident as a firefighter responding to an alarm in 2016. When I learned we would be racing on Whelen First Responders night at Toledo Speedway, I knew I had to give tribute to these two Toledo heroes” said Rob Rehm.
