Sounds like a good read. My experience with Mr. Wheeler was when I was in college working at a bicycle shop. He came by with a bicycle wheel and asked if we could fix the flat on it, paid for it and told us a woman would pick it up. Well, the woman was a stranger he helped on the side of the road. He gave her his wheel from the bike in his truck and told her where she could find her wheel. Funny part is that he left his bicycle wheel worth several hundred dollars to a complete stranger. Then paid to have hers fixed. What a nice guy.


Awesome story Kelley. I too have met Humpy and he's as nice, funny and charming as they come.

Yo DaddyO

Where did "Humpy" get that name? Nevermind.

So where would ole Humpy boy be had it not been for his daddy rabbit wealthiest individual in the Carolinas with his great benefactor Bruton Smith a Founding Father who made him from scratch and owns more racetracks than anyone in the world?

Was Bruton Smiths name even mentioned at the NASCAR opening? Incredible. Why not? Had Smith not opened his big track 50 yrs ago this city would still be a nothing but a small backwater speck. While they honor a few peasants like Petty or Earnhardt ie they ignore the number one reason for it all other than France? Come on now. Whats wrong with this picture?

If you want to know who made this city who it is and ultimately brought all pro sports etc fame and prosperity its Bruton Smith not the other bandwagon uptownie gang, and he cant even get a mention at the NASCAR Hall of Fame he brought here? Damn...

Un frickin real ...

Big Yellow Streak in NASCAR

Speaking of Smith. Is he a man or a mouse? Does he wear womens panties? He showed his true colors recently dropping the lawsuit over the Dragstrip mishandling and other ineptness in an adjacent small town who was cheating him out of 100 million or so according to reports.
We heard the elite officials over there were all laughing and mocking him saying he got cold feet and was scared chicken yellow to go thru with it. Cowardly Lion Wiz of Oz deja vu?
Mercy !!!
