I'm gonna go with:
Casey Jefferies-Damen jefferies co-rider... awesome guy can do anything and everything in a car... he can drive dam good also...

Greg till- cause u have to be a nutt to ride with robby!!! i guess that makes me pretty nutty cause i'd get in the truck in a heart beat:-D haha

and my co-rider Aarin Moore-always willing to get his hands dirty and keeps me calm and can remember any part of a course, he's my own GPS!!! besides the fact he can lift the whole side of my car in the air so i can change the tire, he is literaly my JACK man... haha hes a beast

Jim Fricker was one of the coolest that's for sure, I don't know how long he was with Rod Hall but I can't think of one without the other.

My vote goes to TJ Flores with LVDC. Don't know about best of all time, but certainly one of the very best right now. He has had many class one wins as well as BITD and SCORE championships riding shotgun with BJ Richardson. He can get out and fix anything seeing how he preps the car, he never gets tired and needs to get out, can take over driving duties if needed as he is a hell of a driver himself, and is just plain tuff as nails!

I gotta go with Casey Jefferies too. He and Damen have won a few championships together and Casey knows their cars/trucks up, down, inside and out...

Although that guy who rides with RG isn't to bad either (lol)...

This discussion has to include Bill Stroppe. Think about riding shotgun with Parnelli in Big Oly in Baja in 1970-4. That pucker factor is off the chart...

There's been many - some already mentioned. I'll add Bob Bower:

Randall's
Robby Gordon
Chuck Johnson
Johnny Johnson

to name a few...

It would definitely be Chuck De Vercelly, 1987 SCORE Class 5/1600 Champions, Coronado Racing, Andy's brother. They ran a windshield in they're VW Baja bug. Chuck would keep Andy's cigarettes lit during the race, they both wore open faced helmets! Now that my friends is classic!

I would go with the guy that rode with Ivan Stewart, Dave Ashley and Dan Smith :D:D


My second choice would be Don Tebbe or Russ Wernimont

I have to back that 100%. He also rode with Ivan too when Ivan had a 2 seat vehicle, though I'm not sure when that was, I just remember Bob telling us a story about riding with Ivan.
