Your next five to go into the HOF

I had the pleasure of going to the MT Hall of Fame induction last year and was wondering who your next 5 inductees would be and why?
Mine would go in no particular order
Jim Kramer- he actually could have gone in last year but the founders had to go in first. He put Bigfoot on the map with masterful driving and was well deserving
Rod Litzou- first national champion! Also a huge part to the history of USA-1. He actually did the white paint job on the 72 truck ( which is still all original )
Jan Gabriel - producer and promoter who brought monster trucks to tv. Huge part in mt history to say the least.
Diehl Wilson- has been running the Virginia Giant for about 30 years and counting
Mr. Chamberland- need I say more?
mike vaters-black stallion
johnny k-buffalo tremor
starvin marvin smith-wild hair
Dennis Anderson,,,,,30 years and he has been a favorite since day 1
Jim Kramer.....Made Bigfoot a house hold name racing
Rod Litzou...sorry about spelling,,,,Drove the others to get faster
Army Armstrong,,,,,The Voice of TNT and the Camel Mud & Monsters tour
Mike Vaters,,,,,Still going strong and thrilling fans thru out the country
There are a few others I'd suggest, but with a choice of only 5,,,these are my picks,,,,,,,
Army and George Carpenter should get some award of their own, with out either, we wouldnt be here!!
My TOP 5 Picks for this year:
1.) Jim Kramer(sp?)- He had class in front of the camera, he was one of first 3 to really attack the cars, jumping, and broke so many records in Bigfoot truck.
2.) Mike Welsh- He's did a lot for early years of MT's...He needs to be in there and was ORIGINAL Freestyle person.
3.) Golden State - The whole team was a class act and I always loved watching Bigfoot Vs. one of their trucks because you knew it was going be close and they did not care if the truck broke.
4.) Dennis Anderson
5.) Allan Tura
1st: Jim Kramer... no explanation needed!!!
2nd: Rod Litzau... really no explanation needed here either!!!!
3rd: Andy Brass.. one of the greatest drivers ever to compete
4th: Dennis Anderson... 30 years of Grave Digger.... even though he probably wouldn't attend.
5th: Gary Porter... he's been a big contributor almost as long as anyone...
My favorite monster trucks:
Bigfoot Trucks especially #1,#8,.....hey they created and revolutionized our beloved sport!!!
USA-1 #1&2 ....especially #2 when driven by Rod no disrespect to Steve Wilke RIP!!!
Excaliber#1....black paint job 1986/87 Chevy
Why would you say Dennis wouldn't attend? I think Dennis is one of the nicest most sincere guys out there,,,NO ONE spends more time with the fans than he does,,,All the drivers are awesome, but Dennis seems to have that line that people want to say hi and shake his hand,,,,I'm a Anderson Fan from back in the late 80s, so even back then he was a class act,,,not to mention the next generation Adam & Ryan,,,even the youngest Weston is a good kid with fans as proven at WF 13,,,so I think Dennis would attend because to be put into any Hall of Fame is a HUGE HONOR and to me Dennis was and is # 1 in Monster Truckin!!
It would be Felds decision for Dennis to go in a Grave Digger capacity. Not Dennis'
There was once a truck pull in the astrodome in which many believed Bigfoot 4 did not leave the line. The reality of the situation is that Bigfoot 4 was chained the the astrodome and moved the entire facility 300 feet.
Judging by who is on the selection committee, I don't think it would be too far fetched to see a Feld Motorsports presence at the Hall of Fame. Jeff Cook and company really aim to cut though the bs and politics and make it open to EVERYONE.
Jason Twite Is To Monster Trucks What Steve Bartman Is To The Chicago Cubs....
Steve Breaks Hearts while Jason Breaks Parts

I think the next 5 or more should be the fallen hero's that we have lost over the years.
