A few more, while I'm thinking about it.

"Flying" or "Fabulous" Ernie Brunk...in his Ford Falcon, that was a little tongue in cheek.
Chris "Crisco Kid" Maxson
This is making me feel a little old, if I'm not mistake, Danny Boorse was at one time called "the Kid"

I think just about anybody who has ever driven has had at least one of not all of these used as a "Nick Name" at ine time or another. I'm sure there are many more that are more descriptive.

Baue, I don't even race a car, and I get called all of those names (and they fit!). How about Jolly Wally Pankratz. Jim

Carmen "The Wildman" Manzardo...mostly known for his IRA Sprint Car racing.

And at the same time, we should recognize the man who coined most of the older generations of BMARA drivers nicknames...Harvey Konkel...also a former badger flagman before becoming an Angell Park Speedway announcer.
