Toliver Presents Get R.E.A.L. Program Twice During NHRA Finals at Pomona Raceway

POMONA, Calif. (November 6, 2001) -- Toliver Racing has been very fortunate to work with the World Wrestling Federation and their Get R.E.A.L. program. Tremendous progress has been made with this program. Positive and encouraging reviews from all the schools that have attended continue to be received.

One topic the Get R.E.A.L. program really emphasizes is respect, not only for ourselves but for others as well. A youth program stressing the importance of respect is what drew Karl Christensen, teacher at Norco Intermediate, to the Get R.E.A.L. program. An increased sense of respecting others as well as respecting oneself is essential for children to learn explained Christensen, who will attend the Get R.E.A.L. presentation on Thursday, November 8, with 30 of his 7th and 8th grade students.

In addition to Thursday’s Get R.E.A.L. program, Toliver will also give a presentation to 70 sixth grade students from Treweek Middle School in West Covina on Friday from 10:00– 11:00 a.m. Lucy Munuz, a teacher at Treweek Middle School, foresees her students receiving a very positive message from Toliver and the Get R.E.A.L. program, with an emphasis on the connection between math and science relating to the real world.

“ Every time we present the Get R.E.A.L. program, we gain valuable knowledge for the next time around,” said Toliver. “ It is similar to what we do on the race car in the sense that we learn more and more with each run or presentation we make. This team has the same determination and desire for success in both areas, racing and educating young people.”

“ This is the last race of the season and over the winter we will be working hard in to develop the growth of the Get R.E.A.L. program in order to reach students all across the country,” continued Toliver.“ The goal of Toliver Racing is make a positive impact on the lives of children. If we can make a difference in the life of just one child, the Get R.E.A.L. program is a success. It is priceless knowing we can change a child’s life for the better through this program.”

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. Jerry Toliver will drive the Toliver Racing prepared WWF Get R.E.A.L. Pontiac Firebird Funny Car.
