Your New Rochelle firefighters had a blast yesterday morning working with NBC New York on a special Daytona 500 segment. We had a great time with the cast, guest Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his lovely wife Amy Reimann, who were all super nice. Also, we have to give a special thanks to the crew; it was a pleasure working side-by-side with our brothers and sisters of IATSE LOCAL ONE and Nabet-CWA Local 11!
Check out our Facebook photo album of our day on set.

CLOSE New Rochelle firefighter Rich Bongiorni thought there was a mistake when he received a call from an NBC producer regarding a “Today” show segment that would feature race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. But it was no fluke. Bongiorni – like Earnhardt Jr. – has years of racing experience, though it’s not with motorized vehicles.
@DaleJr takes a photo with @NewRochelleFire, they built these awesome soap box cars. #NW88JR
