hey, thought this would be fun since there are so many people here from around the world, i though maybe we could put down who we think should be on a list of the top 100 (give or take) greatest race drivers in history.

smokey yunick--great innovator and driver, too bad he took his secrets to the grave

richard petty-- the king!

wendell scott-- mostly because he was the first black man to win a NASCAR race

ak miller-- showing the world that american hot rodders knew what they were doing!!

carroll shelby-- need i say more

marshall teague-- most famous driver of a "fabulous hudson hornet"

dale earnhardt-- the intimidator, great driver, and all around nice guy

mickey thompson

jr johnson-- no one can out drive a moonshiner

well, if there's anyone i forgot, then please post, lets get a worldwide list. sorry all my names are americans, i thought it would be cool if we all listed our own countrymen

A girl that has driven the Nürburgring over 20,000 times, and on BBC Top Gear almost equaled a time set by presenter Jeremy Clarkson in an S-Type Jaguar in a Ford Van

Aryton Seena has to be up there for sure, and this is a great piece from Top Gear on him. He was amazing in the rain

Some of of the other greatest drivers that come to mind are from the Rally World. Check em out on youtube

Sebastin Loeb
Tommi Makinen
Colin McRae

Whoever is piloting this?

I can not believe that the greatest of the greats like Tazio Nuvolari, Maury Rose, Wilbur Shaw, Juan Fangio, Billy Vukovich, Johnny Parsons, Stirling Moss and the like have gone unrecognized in any of these list.
