Humpy Wheeler To Retire

In a bit of news I just came across, Humpy Wheeler is set to retire after Sunday's Coke 600. I'm left a bit breathless from that, he's been around since I can remember, and being from North Carolina, he always got special attention whenever the races were in town - and even when they weren't he could find ways to make news. I'm not prone to these retirement things, so in the coming days I'm going to be on the lookout for some of the better ones and link to them. Charlotte, Lowes Motor Speedway, and NASCAR will not be the same without him as a promoter. I wish there were more like him, but the broke the mold.
