Best Enduro driver in MIRA's 25 year history? My vote would go to Dan Kirts. Second would be John Bosek, Closely followed by a number of great racers like Team Highland's Dave Yarhouse, Rob Diamond, and Jeff Kipfmiller, and other current racers Todd Krikke, Grant Vermeersch, and Troy Dewald. Best Racer at the Soo Leroy Linblad.

There are many more out there, how many other forgotten drivers helped start this industry?


Wayne Burkel
Dale Cormican
Ted Westland (mechanic)
Del Wahl (mechanic)
Wesley Pesek
Bert Basset
Ken Beito
Ward Brink
Just to name a few, I don't know many old. old drivers that were anything other than Arctic or Polaris, but where have these "warriors" gone?
