Muravez Back In Western Hoist Nostalgia Top
Burbank, CA (05-30-03) After a short break to work on other business
projects, Bob Muravez, AKA Floyd Lippencotte, Jr., announced today
that he would be returning to the driver's seat in the Western Hoist
Nostalgia Top Fuel dragster, owned by Jon and Jeannie Halstead.
Also returning to the Western Hoist camp is Crew Chief, Chris Nance,
and the other crew members of the Lippencotte Racing team, all anxious
to step up performance and be "a five second player" on
the highly competitive Nostalgia Top Fuel circuit.
Muravez's first race back behind the wheel will be at the GoodGuys-VRA
"West Coast Hot Rod Happening" June 27-29, 2003, in Pomona,
CA, where Saturday night qualifications will give hard-core nitro
fans a spectacular show.
Muravez, in association with Applecast Streaming Video Services,
will also bring racing excitement to fans around the world via a
new communication technology -- broadcasting live action digital
video over the Internet. Lippencotte Race Team's website, www.akaracing.com
in association with WDIFL.com will allow fans to experience live
rides with Floyd and other drivers down the quarter-mile with the
revolutionary "Ride Cam" mounted onboard the Top Fuel
dragsters. Fans can also view all the action in the Western Hoist
pit and other excitement around the track with the roving "Thrash
Cam". Viewers will be able to log onto the Web and be in the
middle of the action all weekend.
