Toliver Racing Introduces New Paint Scheme at AutoZone Nationals presented by Pennzoil

Memphis, TN (September 18, 2001) - Jerry Toliver and the World Wrestling Federation Racing team are geared up to spend the next three weekends on the racetrack. After having the past two weeks off, Toliver and the rest of the National Hot Rod Association entourage head to Memphis, Tennessee for the 14th annual AutoZone Nationals presented by Pennzoil. Prior to the first round of qualifying on Friday, September 21, WWF Racing will introduce a new paint scheme based on the World Wrestling Federation's Get R.E.A.L youth program.

Get R.E.A.L is a program that focuses on middle and high school age students. The purpose of Get R.E.A.L is to bring to the attention of students and school administrators the important roles that Respect, Education, Achievement, and Leadership play in the lives of young people across America.

"This program is a winner all the way around," said Toliver, driver of the WWF Pontiac Firebird Funny Car. "Not only is the World Wrestling Federation's Get R.E.A.L program playing an important role in educating students, it is also a great way to bring young people out to the track to enjoy the sport of drag racing."

"We are extremely pleased to be involved with this exceptional program that the World Wrestling Federation is offering to young people," continued Toliver. "The attributes the Get R.E.A.L program is centered around (Respect, Education, Achievement and Leadership) are ones that make the youth of America successful."

Toliver Racing is in its fourth season of competition in the NHRA Drag Racing Series in 2001. Toliver Racing has six wins to its credit as well as a third and fifth place finish in the 2000 season points championship. The Toliver Racing prepared WWF/Get R.E.A.L Pontiac Firebird will be driven by Jerry Toliver.
