NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kevin Harvick joined first-responders from Texas and Oklahoma for a Sept. 11 tribute to those who served the region and those who died.

The event Wednesday at Texas Motor Speedway honored 44 first responders. Among them were those who served communities devastated tornadoes this year in Moore, Okla., and Granbury, Texas, as well as by a fertilizer plant explosion in the Central Texas town of West.

Harvick is the son of a retired 25-year veteran firefighter in Bakersfield, Calif.

Harvick is scheduled to race in the AAA Texas 500 on Nov. 3.

The event marked the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
