Who is the best Canadian Stock Car Driver? Past Or Present?

Trying to create a list for a project I'm working on.

Earl Ross. (Figured I'd get my vote in before St Hanley's people show up. Smiley )

I think 3 factors are required to be on this list:

1.  Domination:  At some time during the career be the driver who does the bulk of the winning.

2.  Sustainability:   Be capable of winning from the start to the end of the career.  

3.   Versatility:    Has won races where ever the driver runs.

If you can match these then you're the driver.  Popularity should not be a factor.

If you use these 3 points then the list will certainly be short.  There are very few who meet all of them.

I think JR would meet all of those criteria.  Also, could be that I grew up watching him win everywhere.
Biederman would be on my list as well.

5 years ago, I did a poll on CRO on the top Canadian Stock Car drivers. Here are the results:
1. Junior Hanley; 2. Steve Robblee; 3. Don Beiderman; 4. Peter Gibbons; 5.Earl Ross; 6. Don Thomson; 7. J.R. Fitzpatrick; 8. Derek Lynch; 9. D.J. Kennington; 10. Mark Dilley; 11. Jeff Hanley; 12. Bill Zardo; 13. Kevin Dowler; 14. Dave Whitlock; 15. Kerry Micks;
16. Tom Walters; 17. Tom Milligan; 18. Vic Parsons; 19. J.P. Cabana; 20. Steve Tiemersma; 21. Glen Watson; 22. Scott Steckley; 23. Jason Shaw; 24 Pete Shepherd; 25. Jack Monaghan

Based on the criteria given above, I would have to go with Junior as my choice.
Ron Fellows may be a great driver but he is mainly a sports car racer not a stock car driver. If you include him, why not include Jacques Villeneuve, Paul Tracey, Greg Moore, Scott Maxwell, etc. all of whom drove stock cars at one time.
What about the open wheel guys, Warren Coniam, Pete Bicknell, etc.
I also don't agree that the present day guys are not as good. Racing has changed and is ruled by $$$$ today. The drivers today do not get the chance to race as often as those in the past to show their skill. I think guys like Fitzpatrick, Ranger, Kennington, Steckley, etc. may be just as good.

My mistake, yes there are some more and Tom Walters would have to be added to those other four K-man mentioned.
And yes would have to agree that there was more racing in 60`s and 70`s so that does help their cause.

Evan:
There are several Facebook pages dedicated to sharing photo's of old tracks and drivers including most of the ones listed. You could get in touch with the owners of the photo's through those sites.
