And being from the West Coast, I'd also have to throw Dave Bush's name out there. Not only a great driver, but built the highest horsepower motors of anyone - and I've heard that from some of the best engine builders in the business.
    I was thinking the same thing, John Wright

    From what I've seen the hitters are usually from the south. Not saying there haven't been some over the years from up north that have won but I think the boats from the south are generally quicker. Probably because outboard drag boat racing is much bigger down south. Just my opinion. Putting my flame suit on

    Rich Srnec and Jeff Cleinmark are two that come to mind that can or could run with any of them

    Well I have always had a Jaded view of Bob. When he raced I was very young and all I have heard was story from old timers. But if DP has that kind of respect for him he must know a thing or two about make one go down the track.
    who knew a lil ol fishin motor could run like that
