(WBRE/WYOU-TV) It was also an eventful Sunday for some local doctors and nurses at Pocono Raceway but it wasn’t because of the race itself!
Actor Jocko Sims, who plays Doctor Floyd Reynolds in the hit primetime show, “New Amsterdam”, was the race’s honorary starter!
He paid a visit to local medical professionals from the Lehigh Valley Health Network before the race began.
Sims says he loves meeting the people he models his character after, and it seems the sentiment went both ways.”It’s great to be here in the Poconos as Pocono raceway for my first NASCAR event, and just meet all the medical professionals… It’s the merging of two worlds, and it’s really awesome,” Said Sims
“To come, stop by with us, chat with us for a little bit, just brought everyone’s energy up even more… And that’s really exciting,” Said Ryan Hay, Lehigh Valley Health Network.
You can watch Jocko Sims’ show, “New Amsterdam” this fall on W-B-R-E.
