Nicholson to Drive in Houston

This weekend for the Houston divisional, Travis Nicholson will get behind the wheel of Bill Evans' A-Fuel dragster for the first time this season. Nicholson, who drove Tom Conway's car at a divisional event earlier this year, will be in the car for the next few races while they sort out some of the issues they have been having with the tune-up.

"We have been struggling with getting the car down the track consistently, so we have decided to make some changes. You are never going to win races like that, so while we figure it out we thought it would be best to put Travis in the car so Bill doesn't lose anymore valuable points races. And this will also give Travis to get some more experience behind the wheel. He is a great driver and we are really excited to have him as part of our team," said Anthony Dicero, co-crew chief on the car.

That isn't the only change they are making, they also switched motors and brought in Tom Conway to help make the tuning decisions on the car.

"I am really excited about the weekend. We have made so many changes on this car with a different motor, different driver, and different crew chief I am not sure if there was really anything else left that we could have changed. Mike Spitzer made us a great car and we have some really good parts now it is just up to us to make it get down the track."
