BOSTON (AP) - The New Hampshire Motor Speedway will honor and welcome first responders from both the Boston Marathon bombings and the Newtown school shootings at the July 14 New Hampshire 301.
The announcement, made at a ``Champions Event'' luncheon at a Boston bar next to Fenway Park Thursday, was made by the track's general manager Jerry Gappins.
``We're going to honor first responders from throughout New England,'' Gappins said at the event, which featured NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson and retired stars from the four local pro sports teams. ``If you think about the swift and capable response that they brought to us in Boston that day, and they answer the call every day, they really go the extra mile.''
Gappins - who took a cue from Charlotte Motor Speedway, which honors military personnel - said the track has joined forces with corporate sponsors to share the expense of the reserved seating. And he also unveiled a T-shirt that will be sold, with proceeds going to the One Fund in Boston.
