(SALISBURY, NC – 3/26/2019)—StarCom Racing, the U.S. First Responders Association (USFRA), and NASCAR Driver Landon Cassill partner up again for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway to honor our first responders. We are pleased to announce the 2019 Hometown Hero for Dallas/Fort Worth is Mike Drivdahl, Engineer, Firefighter and Public Information Officer for Fort Worth Fire Department. Drivahl is also President of the Fort Worth Firefighter Charities and former Director of Fort Worth Professional Firefighters Association (IAFF Local 440).

“The U.S. First Responders Association is thrilled to partner with StarCom Racing and 00 Driver Landon Cassill again to honor another Hometown Hero at Texas Motor Speedway,” said Janet Liebsch, VP of USFRA. “Mike Drivdahl’s work with Fort Worth Fire Department and Fort Worth Firefighter Charities exemplifies the compassion and dedication that all first responders have for Dallas/Fort Worth communities.”

StarCom Racing’s Hometown Hero program helps bring awareness to the efforts of our nation’s first responders and recognizes one responder that has gone above and beyond the call of duty.

The Fort Worth Fire Department serves over 875,000 citizens with 43 stations and 925 firefighters. In addition to Drivdahl’s daily job as spokesman and fireman for FWFD, Mike Drivdahl is also very involved and engaged with multiple child safety initiatives and community trainings across the city through FWFD and Fort Worth Firefighter Charities.

Drivdahl and his guest will receive complimentary NASCAR VIP Hot Passes for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 on March 31. They will also enjoy SCR’s hospitality package, which includes food and drinks, pit tours, all access to the pit and garage area and a meet-and-greet with Driver Landon Cassill.
