    Default The Best

    Through the years I think we all have had that special driver. I have been around this sport all my life, and I respect each and every one of you guy's and gal's. As a kid growing up in Portsmouth,Oh I was amazed with the orange Switzer driven by Jerry Quin " THE FLYING HILBILLY". It's hard too beleive that 30 years later I'm running against him in SST 120.

    I have two more driver's that meant a lot to me. Kenny Stevenson and Joe Burgess. God Bless them.............................................. ..

    Red was one of the best ever in Mod VP. Ricky Commer was another GREAT.

    Default Best OPC

    History will always remember Billy Seebold!!!!!!!!!!


    Also the other great drivers were

    Jimbo, Buck, Gene T. Benny Robertson.

    History will also remember Reggie Fountain, maybe not as an OPC driver, but you can't forget a FOUNTAIN

    Default Best drivers

    Like has already been mentioned there are many. Some that stand out in my memory, Earl Bentz (even before he was with Mercury), Bill Seebold, Jimbo, Bill Sirois, Renato Molinari. Really hard to say who was the one best.

    Present day, Mike Seebold, Terry Rinker
