Brian Towey's News Coverage Overview

ACI Communications Director, Brian Towey

American Challenge team member Brian Towey has been around motorsports most of his life and has competed in formula, sports and rally cars, skiing and cycling.

Towey was instrumental in the success of Russ Wicks' previous World Speed Record and is committed to ACI's effort to break the World Water Speed Record.   He has managed ACI's communications since the inception, and continues to provide support.

Brian's fondness for "telling it like it is" often stirs up as much controversy as he averts (we probably should have fired him a year ago).   This section features overviews of ACI's miscellaneous news coverage by Brian Towey.
