    Arrow Nextel Vs Fdny

    Today...Tuesday, November 30th

    10:30 a.m.
    NASCAR Nextel Cup Champion Kurt Busch competes against
    firefighters in several training exercises; FDNY Training Academy,

    There's nothing else on the newswires regarding this event....so I'll have to rely on our FDNY brothers to fill in the details!

    Hopefully it doesn't include emergency driving.

    Seriously, I saw two NASCAR vehicles parked on 7th Ave and 38th Street at about 4:00 PM on Tues. Maybe they raced 54 Engine over?

    On the radio this morning, they were talking about 10 Nascar cars being in NYC this week. One day they are going to do a lap around a few blocks. It's to promote the awarding of the Nextel Cup I believe.
    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

    Thumbs up FDNY wins!!!!

    The results...you ask??

    NEW YORK (AP) - NASCAR champion Kurt Busch isn't so fast after
    all.
    The four-day tour of the city that concludes Friday night with
    the Nextel Cup championship presentation took him to the FDNY Fire
    Academy on Tuesday, where Busch proved no match for New York City's
    bravest.
    Honorary recruit Busch had to uncoil and pull a fire hose around
    a corner, push up a ladder, drive a sledgehammer against a
    hydraulic pad and drag a 175-pound dummy 35 feet around a cone and
    back to the starting point.
    "I thought it was going to be cake until we came to that
    175-pound dummy," Busch said. "My lap time was going great until
    I got to that point."
    Busch completed the training exercise in 1 minute, 53 seconds.
    The FDNY average for recruits is 1:18.
