“Heaven on Wheels touched me deeply with its poignant humor and authenticity. I laughed and I cried as I felt transported in time and emotions to a precious period of life with my Dad, NASCAR stockcar driver and entrepreneur, Curtis Turner.

The music is great and the entire cast is very creative and talented. I highly recommend Heaven on Wheels to all for a fun time and an authentic inner look into the flavor of the early days of NASCAR and the pioneers of stockcar racing!” – Margaret Sue Turner Wright, Curtis Turner’s Daughter

-”I was amazed, amused and thoroughly entertained by Heaven On Wheels. The history, comedy and music are all dead-on for accurate, funny and memorable entertainment. I’d recommend this show to anybody.”
