Ever heard Humpy Wheeler speak? The former president of Charlotte Motor Speedway is brilliant, creative and funny. He'll start a story and you'll have no idea where it's going. And then he finishes and the story goes right to your heart.
Humpy just wrote a book, "Growing up NASCAR," and will talk about it from 5-8 p.m. tonight at Dandelion Market, 118 W. Fifth St., in Charlotte. (That's near the corner of Fifth and Church Streets.)
He'll discuss his work, and his sport, tell you about characters and tracks and drivers and crewmen. He'll take you inside. Even if you're a long-time NASCAR fan, even if you know the sport, Humpy will take you places you haven't been. And make you think and make you laugh along the way.
