TV Show Goes Behind the Scenes with HVM Racing

Indianapolis, Indiana (May 7, 2009) -- Racing fans will get an all-access look at how a team prepares on race day when KNBC-TV follows HVM Racing behind the scenes on this week's episode of "Whipnotic." The automotive-themed show airs Saturday in the Los Angeles area and online.

A TV crew from L.A.'s NBC affiliate followed the HVM crew for the entire race-day morning at the Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 19. The crew captured all the meticulous work that went into preparing the No. 13 PDVSA HVM Racing Honda Dallara from the moment the car was rolled off the truck to its arrival on pit road. The crew interviewed members of the team and driver E.J. Viso to paint a comprehensive picture of all that goes into getting a car ready for the green flag.

"I don't think the average fan knows just how much work goes into preparing a car for a race," said Keith Wiggins, HVM Racing's team principal and owner. "Our crew spends long hours in the shop and long hours in the paddock at the track. And each person plays a very specific and important role in the success of the team."

The episode of "Whipnotic" featuring HVM Racing airs Saturday, May 9, at 5 p.m. and Sunday at 1:30 a.m. in the Los Angeles area. Fans outside the L.A. area can watch the episode on Whipnotic.com after the broadcast.
