In 1999 I believe it was a rear tire/wheel/half-shaft combo got into the stands and killed three and injured a number of other fans from an Indycar race. He'll talk about the aftermath of that accident from a liability standpoint.
Humpy Wheeler was my favorite track promoter while with Nascar and he's one of the few i still listen to today.Thanks for the info.
"Humpy" is DA BOMB!!! He made the infield at Charlotte into a Circus atmosphere. One year he even had elephants in the infield. I personally think Bruton Smith f#(ked up when he threw "Humpy" to the curb.....
Humpy was the best promoter Nascar ever had on and off the track and don't stop there MW,Bruton Smith continues to f#(k up- Bristol is another prime example!
