    Default Rising Stars

    Lets not forget about Marc Johnson, Last year at Jesup I put Marc in my SST45, he tested for five minutes on Friday. He started last off the dock and the next thing you know he comes out of the first turn second. what a race it was. I lost my voice and Marc lost his hearing...................LOL

    Good job Marc

    This list could, and will, go on for a long time!
    What about Ted May, Ron Hill, maybe even (Super) Dick Sherrer?
    Best of all time... that's like asking who is the best baseball player, Mickey Mantle, A-Rod, Babe Ruth?? I think the best right now would have to be F-1's Guido Capelini the guy is just FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When talking "BEST EVER" there are just too many traits to think about here - One group are the consistent drivers who methodically make their way to the front. But I also tend to think about the guys who you just love to watch - who can man-handle any race boat to make it do stuff and make moves that cause you to go "WOW!!!"

    Off the top of my head:

    Chris Bush, JR Saffold, Greg Foster, Mike Seebold, Benny Robertson, Rick Hoffman, Jimmy Johnson, and as I said above; Red Hindman.

    Oops - one other that should be added to my list of go-getters above is Shaun Torrente - he's another one that makes you go "Ooooooo..."
