In celebration of H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler's 30th year as general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway, the first 5,000 fans through the gates for the Dollar General 300 NASCAR Busch Series race on Friday, Oct. 14, will receive a "Humpy" bobblehead.

In addition, Wheeler has autographed two of the bobbleheads and the fans receiving those will get to meet the legendary auto racing promoter.

Hired in 1975 by track owner Bruton Smith, Wheeler has utilized his innovative style of entertainment promotion and extensive motorsports background to transform the 1.5-mile superspeedway into one of the world's leading sports facilities.

Under Smith's guidance and Wheeler's management, Charlotte Motor Speedway was the first to present spectacular pre-race shows and pioneered many of the spectator and competitor amenities that are now commonplace in the industry.

The "Humpy" bobblehead is five inches tall and features Wheeler standing on a base that includes Charlotte Motor Speedway's familiar red, white and blue globe logo.

The bobblehead give-away starts when spectator gates open at 2 p.m. and continues while supplies last. NASCAR Busch Series qualifying for the Dollar General 300 is at 2:30 p.m. followed by a pair of 45-minute NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series practice sessions during which teams will make final preparations for the UAW-GM Quality 500 on Saturday night, Oct. 15.

The Dollar General 300 NASCAR Busch Series race is scheduled to get the green flag at 8:20 p.m.

Frontstretch tickets for the Dollar General 300 on Friday night, Oct. 14, start at just $17 and can be purchased online here or by calling the Charlotte Motor Speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS.
