SHAQUILLE O'NEAL

SHAQ VS - "Shaq VS Dale Earnhardt Jr." - In the premiere episode, "Shaq VS Dale Earnhardt Jr.," four-time NBA champion Shaquille O'Neal will race head to head at Concord Speedway in North Carolina against Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR's most popular driver and recent winner of the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway and more than 40 NASCAR-sanctioned races. Shaq has swapped his size-23 basketball shoes for racing Velcro; traded his breezy, cool basketball jersey for a heavy, fire-retardant driver's suit; forgone the familiarity of basketball hardwood for the cramped quarters of a stock-car cockpit - all 7-foot-1-inch, 325 pounds of him. In this episode he also travels to the nation's capital to take on the Scripps National Spelling Bee champion, 15-year old Kavya Shivashankar, and enlists the help of this year's finalists, along with Kavya's 8-year old sister, Vanya. Season Two of "Shaq VS" will debut TUESDAY, AUGUST 3 (9:01- 10:01 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/TRAVIS BELL)
