Toliver Racing, with the support of the World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc., announced today that it would park the second car, driven by rookie driver Tony Bartone, for the remainder of the 2001 season, effective immediately. Jerry Toliver will remain in the driver's seat of the primary car and Dale Armstrong will continue his duties as Crew Chief for Toliver Racing.

"It was a difficult decision to make, however we feel it will allow us to direct our focus on the performance of the primary car," stated Toliver. "I support and believe in Dale Armstrong 100% as the Crew Chief for this team. My trust and confidence in his abilities have never wavered and I am certain he will see this team through these changes," said Toliver.

"It has been my pleasure working with Bob Brooks as a Crew Chief and Tony Bartone. Both have done a tremendous job and if and when we return to a two-car format, Brooks and Bartone will be my first choice for the second team," said Toliver."

"The relationship between Toliver Racing and World Wrestling Federation Entertainment exceeds that of standard sponsorship. When making decisions concerning this race team, we are extremely fortunate to work with them as more than just a sponsor, but as a partner," stated Toliver. "The collective decision to operate this organization as a one-car team does not affect the contractual agreement between Toliver Racing and World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc."
