    NASCAR Sprint Cup Driver Carl Edwards usually burns rubber on the race track.

    For Wednesday -- at least -- the 12th anniversary of 9/11, Edwards is putting out fires with help of first responders at Miami Dade fire and rescue.

    Edwards was put through traditional fire rescue training session at MDFR's headquarters in Doral, participating in a number of drills at the state of the art facility.

    No. 99 put out fires, hacked down doors of a smoke house, and even extricated a victim from a car, using the jaws of life.

    As a parting gift, MDFR's fire chief gave Edwards a station patch, which he says hell wear proudly on his suit during NASCAR's final sprint cup race, november in Homestead.
