Nitro Revival is, well, about nitro. We feature the cars that do that thing they do so well. But, this page will share some of those who make all the things happen. The owners, drivers, fans, photographers and staff. Unlike the autograph page, many of the folks here are not household names. Other sites would not acknowledge them at all. We are not other sites. If you're not here, nobody sent a photo. The cars will come again on the next page.



Who better to lead off this page than Geno Gastelum.

Ross Howard explains the poster: Marvin & I are from the same community in Oklahoma City, what used to be Britton, Oklahoma. He won the Nationals in 1974, about Summer of 1975 he had his car on display @ Ted Ward Automotive in Oklahoma City. The local radio said come see the US Nationals winner. I had my Kodak 110 instamatic, and went to see the car. I took these photos that day, I also picked up one of those Pennzoil SUPERSTAR hero cards. I kept it all these years.So fast forward 46 years... I had it made into a banner for presentation to Marvin @ the Revival. Marvin was blown away with it. We had our usual gathering of hooligans with us when we did so. L-R: WHO, Simon Menzies, Me, Vance Hunt, Larry Brown. Look for the banner hanging at Prieto's if you attend the annual taco party. We had a Chez Who sign made as well, I will find the pic. Marvin was going to cook for us while we were there, so i made him a chef.

Event Host Club, The Road Kings were well represented.


There aren't many of the original Road Kings left. Bob Muravez is one of them. The guy in the purple jacket is Ben Curtis past President of Road Kings. He moved out of state and all of these guys are members of a car club from there. Don't know names.
