It's a good idea Keith. Lots of people to nominate who really deserve
credit…but if one of the goals of this is to publicize LSR, right now my
vote would have to go to Al Teague…. others to follow.
Any of the Street Rodding venues would be a great place to show
LSR participants what we are all about. Two or three vehicles and a crowd
of racers could be a lot of fun for the weekend too.
