Dale Earnhardt Jr. rolls out the red carpet on the 2020 debut by bringing in the ultimate ringmaster, legendary racing promoter H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler. The two discuss Humpy's wild early days in racing, wheeling and dealing to sell tickets, creating chances for drivers including Dale Earnhardt and an astonishingly long boxing career. They share some laughs about the zaniest of pre-race stunts, some of which drew the ire of NASCAR. Dale & Co-host Mike Davis clean up a messy Busch Clash and debate NASCAR Hall of Fame changes. The DJD gang answers fan questions, reveal details of Dale's new tv-show and tell tall tales of Daytona partying.
