Luke McMillin! I rode with him already pre-running! few!
Agreed! ive ridden with him alot and have ridden in a race and he is just as fast as anyone else already. I have also been riding with him since he was 7 yrs. in the dunes.
 
Sam Berri............. I am getting a kick out of all your nominations. I must say being his little woman, I have spent the last 20 years with him and being a co driver in many situations. Everything from riding with him while hauling equipment weighing in excess of 120,000 lbs, wide loads, through narrow mountain one lane roads. to riding with him in one of many of his tpw trucks, towing cars through 2 feet of snow, pushing it with his front bumper at 60 plus MPH, fresh snow billowing behind us like a jet engine vapor, (people in the car riding backwards smoking dope and thinking the show was totally cool) sideways around corners, and never missing a lick......... Of course I am sucking seat....... but he is just cool as a cucumber, his expression never changes.

We have had equipment tip over the lowbed trailer at a stand still, Sam has been catapaulted off of a lowbed sitting on a D7 Cat and rolled off of a 40 foot embankment. He came home with clothes covered in battery acid, Couldn't even button his pants the next day he was so sore, but by god he made it to work.

He raced the Mint back in oh boy, 90??? tried passing a car, Launched off of some rocks, rolled, landed upside down in some boulders, the boulders smashed his hand against the steering wheel, splitting open several of his fingers, exposing the bone. After a night in the Las Vegas hospital, I got him home the next day, right Hand all wrapped up, Come Monday, he was still determined to go to work, he had equipment to haul for one of our sponsors, Tom Martin Logging..... and he was not going to let them down, he took one of our employees with him to help him tie things down, and shift, but by god he did it... I had to get him into a local specialist that same day, as His hand was getting infected, they had to cut all the skin off and start from scratch, as Las Vegas did not do such a hot job. He never missed a day of work.

Not to mention the time his colon exploded during a race weekend...... he may have been in the hospital, but his car was still racing.... Bobby Martin ran his car.

So yeah, when it comes to heart, and loyalty and being able to MaGyver his way thru, Sam Berri is no slacker......

DJ Jeffrey is more of a up and comer. But I do think in the next few years he will be schooling all of us.
I hope to be joining him in a couple years. ;)
well, once i can get a job......

I don't think DJ is underrated, he just can't show off his obvious talent and skill because he is underage. everyone knows he is an awsome racecar driver ;)

I second that!!! these guys will smoke anyone in 5/1600..I would like to see what they can do in a class 1 or tt
Marcos Nuñez - amazing 5/1600 driver w/ kiosko racing in Mexico. Great guy, I met him at SCORE Primm '06, really motivated our team when we started to build our car

They've won the B1K four times and B500 five times, my money would be on these guys for this upcoming 500, they just won SF250 too. http://kioskoracing.com/v2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=13&Itemid=27
