Montecalvo Ready For Chevrolet Day At CARQUEST Empire Nationals

LEICESTER, NY. -If You think for a moment that the Chevrolet versus Ford rivalry doesn't exist, then chances are, you haven't talked to Chevrolet Pro Stock racer John Montecalvo or his soft-spoken teammate Angelo Alesci lately. The two leaders of the "Bowtie Brigade" in Pro Stock are very intent on putting down the Ford drivers and they won't be satisfied until they do so.

For Montecalvo, an asphalt paving company owner from Center Moriches, N.Y., squelching the Ford of Tom Lee and the Mercury of Gene Wilson, would be a treat. The Citgo-sponsored driver intends to do just that.

"Gene and Tom have won enough already," explained Montecalvo, who does battle in a Chevrolet Cavalier. "It's time for the Chevrolets to come storming through. We've let them have their fun, but the fun stops this weekend. We will be gunning for the winner's circle and we're not going to stop until we get there."

Alesci expects good things from the Chevrolets this weekend in Leicester.

"We are starting to get a handle on the Cavaliers," explained Alesci. "They are good cars, but we have just had to try different things to see what they wanted. You have to remember one thing about the Ford guys. They got a headstart on breaking in their cars. We're catching up in a hurry."

Alesci's has the best finish for the Chevrolets by reaching the final round at the Mopar Parts Canadian Nationals in Grand Bend, Ontario. Montecalvo has a handful of quarterfinal finishes to his credit as well.
