Missed Paul Teutul Sr. at the Fire-Dex Booth at FDIC This Year? You can still catch all the action and see the “Heat of the Battle,” Fire-Dex’s firefighter-inspired custom built Orange County Chopper that was given away to an FDIC attendee. CLICK HERE to watch the Fire-Dex video now.
Fire-Dex is pleased to announce Lt. Gene Marcheschi of the Blue Island Fire Department in Blue Island, Illinois as the grand prize winner of the “Take the Fire-Dex Challenge” and recipient of the “Heat of the Battle” custom chopper.
The “Heat of the Battle,” Fire-Dex’s firefighter-inspired custom built Orange County Chopper, was the grand prize of the “Take the Fire-Dex Challenge” event at FDIC 2008. To compete, firefighters tried on Fire-Dex turnout gear and challenged an opponent in a one-of-a-kind firefighter-inspired obstacle course to be entered into a random drawing to win the “Heat of the Battle.”
In total, nearly 1,000 participants took the Fire-Dex Challenge to become eligible for the “Heat of the Battle,” or one of three sets of turnout gear autographed by Paul Teutul, Sr.
Lt. Marcheschi (photo below) has been an active duty firefighter for 24 years and has worked for the Blue Island Fire Department since 1979. He is also a fan of “American Chopper,” the reality TV show about Orange County Choppers. Note: Subsequently, Lt. Marcheschi passed away in May 2008.
The three winners of the autographed turnout gear were Donald Haynes, Tony DeCap and Shannon Tanner.
