FAMILY RACE TEAM COMPETES FOR CROWN BUICK

 FAMILY RACE TEAM COMPETES FOR CROWN BUICK
 PITTSBURGH, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Crown Buick may be known for its


winning automotive sales and service team, but this week the South Hills auto dealership along with many other area businesses, will be adding powerboats to its list of interests.
 The Regatta is a tradition for Carl Pecoraro, owner of Crown Buick. He has been actively involved in the event for more than 13 years. A local sponsor in the Formula One 500 race for the past three years, Pecoraro considers the dealership's involvement more for fun than for publicity.
 "Our employees really get behind the race," said Pecoraro. "It's a real thrill to have a powerboat racing with your company's name on it ... and it is great for the morale," he added.
 Crown chose to sponsor the Seebold family -- Bill and his son Mike -- in this year's Regatta. Bill has been racing for nearly 40 years and is the most successful powerboat driver in the history of the sport. Another son, Tim, is also a driver, carrying a family tradition that the trio said they believe is the key to their success. The Seebolds also build boats in the family owned business, Seebold Racing, Inc. The company builds more than half of the boats that compete in the championship circuit.
 "We decided to sponsor the Seebold family this year because of their winning record and because of the family's team concept. Once we read about their backgrounds and the family's love of the sport, we felt instantly drawn to this team of drivers," said Pecoraro.
 Pecoraro and the employee family at Crown Buick will be watching closely on Sunday. And, if the Crown powerboat, driven by Mike Seebold wins ... "Well, that would be great for everyone," said Pecoraro.
