Cast of Lizard Lick Towing Visit Coca-Cola Family Ice Rink Saturday to Support Speedway Children's Charities
This week at the Coca-Cola Family Ice Rink at Speedway Christmas, one of the nation’s largest light shows, fans can meet the stars of the truTV show “Lizard Lick Towing,” Ron and Amy Shirley, and support a good cause.
“Lizard Lick Towing,” follows the North Carolina-based couple and the adventures of their towing and repo business. Ron opened Lizard Lick Towing & Recovery in 1998 with one truck. With Amy's help, the business grew to become a successful company with a staff of 15 and a fleet of 20 trucks. After declining a chance to be on truTV's "Wife Swap," producers offered the couple a role in "All Worked Up," and later offered them their own show.
Ron and Amy will be on hand to sign autographs and sell merchandise from 6 to 9 p.m. The first 500 fans through the gate after 3 p.m. on Saturday will receive a wristband for an autograph. No purchase is necessary. In addition, fans can purchase the latest Lizard Lick Towing merchandise, just in time for Christmas. A portion of the proceeds from merchandise sales will be donated to Speedway Children’s Charities. The rink will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday.
