I appreciated all the feedback and recoomendations, I'm not going to try and rank the Top 10, I rather for the racing community to vote on Top 10 for each
category, Electric, Stock and Nitro. If I left anyone who you feel should be on the list let me know.

At some we can do a Hall of fame list at a later time.

I was there to see Joel and Ralphie win their first national titles 40 years ago.

Not familiar with most of the US guys, but there seems to be at least one double entry on the list (or are there two guys with the same name?)

Also the thread title says Top 10, but it seems more like Top 30 in Mod alone. Is that intentional?

I personally race with Felix law ,Corey Parsons and Dave vera down here in South Florida .they are local to our club, Felix is an all-around great guy helps most with setups has helped me many times and drove my car to give feedback. Dave vera runs and races in the state series throughout Florida and is a great guy as well.... Corey p is awesome as is Corey record...who should be on this list too... I think there's four or five other South Florida drivers on that list i see in the pits some time but not chatty with them....watch for Lazaro jr....fast up and coming racer...

FYI Dave Vera should also be in the 17.5 list as he won the Nationals in 2018

Is there any more info available on these "Top racers" .
Home track
Current chassis
Motor preference
Sponsorships
recent big race wins
ETC.....
Some of you seem rather enthusiastic mentioning the top racers,
Save but a few , many are simply unknown to the majority of us.
Perhaps populating a simple table/spreadsheet would give a better glimpse
of the "top-end" racing scene, both hardware wise & geographically. Personally
I'd be curious if anyone is from the Chicago area , as we're currently trying to
resurrect the racing in the Tri-state area.
thx in advance...

I just don't see how you are going to pare this down to 10 drivers!

No particular order. All touring car guys. Pulled the 12th guys off unless they also are top 10 in tc as well. Sam in modified, Robbie 17.5, and EA 21.5 are my votes for top driver in each class. These are from results over the last couple years.
