McCarthy/Pritchard Motorsports Team Members Help in World Trade Center Rescue Efforts

Two members of McCarthy/Pritchard Motorsports, a NASCAR Busch North Series team based in northern New Jersey, have gone to New York City to aid in the rescue and recovery after September 11th's devastating terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center twin towers.

Scott Warner, a part time member of McCarthy/Pritchard Motorsports and a full time Fire Captain for the Dover Fire Department in New Jersey, went to New York on September 11th. He is a member of an elite task force that is trained for building collapse rescue. Scott has been working 12 hour shifts on the site searching for survivors. Team co-owner Jim Pritchard spoke to Scott's wife on Sunday, September 16th and she said he is ok.

Two days after the attacks, Pritchard, a police officer for the town of Dover, New Jersey, went to the city himself to help with the rescue and clean-up with a few of his fellow officers.

"I cannot put into words what I saw, it's just devastating," he said. "The television pictures do nothing, it's sad. When we went to work it was amazing, we were working with officers and firemen from all over the country. Working on the site is very dangerous with steel beams over your head and they could collapse at anytime. Nobody cared, we just kept working. I can only imagine what my team member and friend Scott is doing inside the collapse. May God be with the families of the Firemen and Police Officers that lost their lives trying to help others."
