Hickey to be featured on ESPN2ís 'NASCAR Now'
Nursing Professor Patrick Hickey, who has scaled the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, will be featured Sunday, May 16, on “NASCAR Now,” ESPN2’s daily news and information program. The program begins at 9 a.m.
Hickey planted a NASCAR flag at the summit of Mt. Everest in 2007. He even timed it for May 24, matching the number of his favorite driver, Jeff Gordon.
Hickey and others featured in the program’s month-long series on NASCAR fans are subjects in the recently released book, The Weekend Starts on Wednesday, by Andrew Giangola.
