long time ricky rudd fan who met ricky personally at ricky's apperance at shippensburg pennsylvania. ricky was one of the BEST drivers for over 20 years and im sick and tired of all of the underappreciation he has recieved over the years. he could still get it done with these new "bozos" running at the sprint cup level. ricky was just sick and tired of the way nascar was heading in their future. i dont blame him, nascar has become so boring, so trivial nowadays that it is nothing what it use to be. ricky, i miss you and would love nothing more for you to come back to racing but I understand that Linda and Landon must be the focus of your life right now. You inspired me to be a better person and if i had the chance to be a better racer, although i am a badass go cart driver right now.... ricky, you are simply the best driver not to win a championship and you are a champion in my heart forever and for always.... miss you bud

I started watching NASCAR in 88 and was instantly hooked.I remember seeing the number 10 Tide car and I said cool car. After watching the race and hearing the driver and how he spoke, I became a true Ricky Rudd fan . Thanks for some of the best racing I have ever, and will ever see . Racing is not the same without you .
