Area Roundup: Realty TV star Amy Shirley named honorary starter
Will wave green flag at Goody's Headach Relief Shot 500 on Oct. 27

Friday, October 11, 2013

By BULLETIN STAFF REPORTS -

Reality television stars Ron and Amy Shirley, and their show “Lizard Lick,” a real life look at their tow-truck business have gathered rave reviews since the show first appeared on Tru-TV in the winter of 2011.

Amy Shirley won’t be driving any of the company’s 20 tow trucks on Oct. 27, but she will be in the flag stand at Martinsville Speedway waving the green flag as honorary starter for the Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500 Powered by Kroger. There will be one of the Lizard Lick tow trucks on display for the weekend.

“They say Virginia is for lovers and I love a good race,” Amy said in a press release. “In the repo world, cars are our business, so I'm excited to be part of all the action at Martinsville. Can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than at the track meeting our awesome fans.”

“Lizard Lick” first premiered on Feb. 7, 2011 and features the intense reactions to the company’s repossessions, complete with the dynamic and entertaining personalities of Ron, Amy, and their friend/co-worker Bobby Brantley.

It quickly became a fan favorite. The season three premiere in January had 2.9 million viewers tune in, marking a 30 percent increase in viewership.

Lizard Lick is a small North Carolina town located near Raleigh.
