In recognition of their service to the community and their support to Jackson County Speedway, a First Responder Recognition Night will be conducted this Friday evening, June 11, at the racetrack in connection with the racing program that evening.

Local first-responder personnel -- including those from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, the Jackson Police Department, all Jackson County fire departments, Jackson County EMS, and Holzer Medical Center-Jackson Emergency Room -- will be admitted free of charge that evening with each individual receiving a public introduction on the track during the program. The racing program will begin at approximately 7:15 p.m. and the introductions of the first responders is expected to take place in the period from 9 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. First responders need only to bring their identification with them to gain admittance.

Jackson County Speedway Track Announcer and Public Relations Director Herman Staats told The Telegram that Jackson County Speedway appreciates the first responders for their overall service to the public, but also for their important work at the speedway as emergency personnel are always present when racing is taking place.

Jackson County Speedway is located west of Jackson at 1245 Roberts Road, approximately two miles west of U.S. Route 35.
