“They represent the best part of our industry, they’re joining an elite group of drivers that have been inducted before them,” said Bob Boyich of Huron Services Group who helped introduce the inductees. “I always find the hall of fame drivers, that there is common characteristics between them. They’re a kind, cautious, considerate person, they’re not in a hurry, always giving way to someone else.”
