Default USA TOP 10 ON ROAD RC DRIVERS

I wanted to see who are the TOP 10 RC Drivers in the US, what a
better way to start a discussion, I know we have some of the
BEST drivers in the world.

I know modified is the cream of the crop, when I started racing
back in the early 90's I knew who where the TOP On road racers.

I've been out racing for many years and I would like to get up to speed,
so who will be first to name the TOP 10 RC ON-ROAD DRIVERS?

No need to be in a special order, just top 10 or 20.

Thanks for everyone's participation.

Me,me,me,me,me,me,me,me,me, and me.

I think that covers that. I don't think anyone would complain about my choices, right?

Ryan Cavalieri doesn't race onroad often, but when he does, he's extremely quick.

Ivan, Andrew Hardman is 16 now, I think. When I first raced him he was 11 and wore a cookie monster baseball cap. Getting destroyed by a little kid wearing a cookie monster hat was quite humbling, I must say.
