Also in this episode: "Humpy" Wheeler is the former president of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, and although his attic is a gold mine, getting him to part with any of his treasures takes serious charm and a charitable strategy. Later, Billy Biscoe was in the pit crew of a NASCAR champion and has a collection of jaw-dropping artifacts that's as impressive as his stories. And, picking takes a back seat when Mike and Frank climb into a pair of vintage racecars for a drag race showdown.
