Speed Channel's 'Dangerous Drives' to feature two storm chasers

Two storm chasers with Wichita ties, Jim Reed and Mike Phelps, will be featured in an episode of “Dangerous Drives” on the Speed Channel.

The show airs at 7 p.m. Central time and focuses on a storm chase in the Wichita area with the 1994 Ford Explorer Reed bought from a dealership in Cheney.

Phelps is a native of Wichita, and Reed has lived in Wichita off and on over the past several years, using it as a base for storm chasing in Tornado Alley.
