H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler to Serve as Grand Marshal

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. (October 6, 2009) - Legendary race promoter H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler will serve as the Grand Marshal and will wave the green flag for Sunday's running of the ARCA RE/MAX American 200 at the Rockingham Speedway.

Wheeler, the former President and General Manager of Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, currently is the chairman of The Wheeler Company, a consulting management firm focusing on general business, professional sports, and motorsports he founded last year with his son, Trip. The Wheeler Company has been involved with the Rockingham Speedway through a driver development program, Humpy's Heroes, which has used the facility for testing and practice for its young drivers.

"I am so glad my good friend Humpy Wheeler has accepted this honor for Sunday's race," said Rockingham Speedway President Andy Hillenburg. "While I still have a lot to learn about race promotions, Humpy has been a great mentor to help me and Rockingham Speedway get where we are at this point. I am truly appreciative for all he has done."
