MILWAUKEE — First responders will be honored at the inaugural REV Group Grand Prix, to be held in June, with free entry the entire week of activities.
REV Group, a Milwaukee-based manufacturer of specialty vehicle brands, and Road America, are teaming up to create a unique race experience for first reponders during the inaugural NTT IndyCar series in late June.
All active-duty first responders, including law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians, will receive free entry. They have to show valid identification indicating active service.
Fire and ambulance vehicles from REV's E-ONE, KME, Horton, AEV, and Wheeled Coach brands will also be on display, allowing race fans to get a close look at some of the vehicles that equip the nation’s first responders.
“We are honored to have the REV Group Grand Prix as a platform to recognize first responders. The employees of REV wanted to share our appreciation for the dedicated people who use our vehicles each day to serve their communities,” said Tim Sullivan, president, and CEO of REV Group.
An international lineup of drivers will compete at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin from June 20-23.
