"The Humpy Show" Kicks-Off Tuesday Night
The pilot episode of The Humpy Show is airing on SPEED Tuesday night at 9PM Eastern Time for one hour. This one should be interesting.
Humpy Wheeler from the Lowe's Motor Speedway is one of those guys you can just sit and talk with for hours. His stories are interesting, hilarious and historical.
At this time in his life, it seems to be a very good idea to get Humpy on-the-air to talk with other personalities in the sport and also to throw-in his own brand of racing wisdom.
Wheeler has told me stories that I repeat to friends now some ten years later. From the old pick-up truck with the Alaska license plates to the decision to build the first condos at a racetrack, he is always an interesting character.
It should be worthwhile tuning-in or recording this program, as SPEED continues to try and originate more NASCAR-related programming for 2008. This one could be fun!
