Unlike the old days, today thirty is the new twenty in the USA... Don't ask me why, but that's the way things are nowadays......

If you go back the last few years of carpet and pavement nats, snowbirds, IIC.. it’s Brandon or Sam for #1.

Hard to say when they run such different schedules it seems. Kemp has a few good runs the last few years too.

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.
Are you looking for current active US on-road rc drivers or all time US on-road rc drivers?

I get to see lex and Brandon and a few others come to our local track on a regular basis. They are gearing up for Amainhobbies carpet champs comin in January, that will be the spot to see the fastest in the country right now..

I think you're on the wrong coast to see the fastest carpet racers in the USA.

Heck, if you want to throw the old guard in there, don’t forget Joel Johnson - saw him run at the Nitro On-Road Nats earlier this year. He was kicking butt until his car broke. For someone who does not really run competitively anymore, that was a great showing!

Makes me wonder, are guys like Rick Howhart still driving competitively? I know Ralph still does - I saw him at the Miami Nitro Grand Prix last weekend, as was Tosolini. I also have to ask if we are comparing EP drivers, or just On-Road in general, because Ralph and Chris are just running Nitro now, AFAIK. If we’re going to include Nitro, DJ Apolaro has been doing consistently well at major events even with the switch to Wallace/Infinity from Capricorn - usually changing brands takes a while to adjust.
