The taping will generate a tremendous amount of excitement for the show here in KC and will give many loyal "Wheel" fans a chance to fulfill their dream of actually being on the show. It�s also a once-in-a-life-time marketing opportunity for Kansas City to showcase itself to a nationwide audience of millions, " said Station Manager Craig Allison.
