Hi Guys,

I am looking for photos of the fire rescue teams' pickup based trucks that roll on crashes at the NASCAR races.  Can be from the 80's, as I am looking to build one that served at Daytona International Speedway.  My IPMS chapter is doing a "NASCAR at Daytona" themed club build.  I have searched the Internet, and posted this question elsewhere.  Most of the responses featured a late model  red Pierce pumper.  I am hoping to find some information and reference photos of a truck kit that is/was readily available.  Am I dreaming, or did such vehicles ever exist???  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Also open to something a little different, such as the jet dryers used after rain to dry the track, or any other "different" subject matter...  Thanks!

David,  thats funny you bring this, I just started working a track saftey truck

 

Here is something to keep in mind, that alot of the track vehicles will travel to other race tracks,  ISC does that, so a truck you see at Daytona, you might see at Phoenix Intl Raceway.

 

Here are a few of the trucks that are at PIR( same owners as Daytona)

Their are no NASCAR safety vehicles as per the NHRA who has the Safety Safari and travel to every race. Each track is contracted to provide their own safety vehicles.

There are no NASCAR trucks, but there are track owned trucks that do travel within those tracks owned by ISC/SMI,  most of those trucks are the clean up trucks.
