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.
