Matt Kenseth was not the only one celebrating at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night. Brad Maxey was celebrating, as well, after he was named this year’s ServiceMaster Clean Extra Mile Award winner at the speedway.
Maxey is only the second Texas Motor Speedway team member to ever receive the ServiceMaster Clean Extra Mile Award, which recognizes an employee’s exceptional hard work put forth every weekend at the races.
“Through Brad’s leadership, Texas Motor Speedway has the best pit road fire rescue crew in motorsports,” Texas Motor Speedway Vice President of Operations Mat Stolley said. “The dedication and professionalism that he exemplifies is reflected in each and every fireman that works for Brad on pit road. We are extremely grateful for his efforts, and I am proud to be associated with Brad and his fine staff.”
Maxey has been volunteering at Texas Motor Speedway for 14 years. He first volunteered on the medical side of the track services team, serving as a physician’s assistant in the infield and outfield care center. Five years later, he was designated as the new pit road fire chief, which is where he currently carries out the very important role of overseeing all the firemen on pit road. He also serves as the pit road supervisor at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The ServiceMaster Clean Extra Mile Award originated in 2010. The award recipient can be any member of the track staff that works in a service-oriented position. Track management personnel select the winner.
