    That a lot of scrap iron they have made over the last 30+ years, give or take 155-160 cars made a year. Wonder what chassis has built the most late model chassis?

    DOD will probably get #5000 and make a bunk bed out of it for the office.

    I'd take #5000 and then give it to the Rocket driver that doesn't make the field at some race.

    We shall see. It's going to be an interesting year with Pierce in a Rocket. I just can't imagine how much better he'll be with arguably the best chassis around.

    Outta curiosity, which chassis won the Lucas and the WoO championships? Which chassis took the top 3 at the World 100?

    Kinda amazing what quality and staying on top of your game and hard work can do for you.

    I always laugh when people talk about rocket and mark richards. Steve Baker probably laughs like h*ll too. If you don't like Baker then you must be a troll. He is just as big of a reason Rocket is rolling chassis #5000 of the table. Steve ran many shows doing r & d work and there combination has made Rocket, like it or not, #1. I wonder who would be close to that number. I think CJ Rayburn could be in the thousands...

    I'm going to take a wild guess about who has been their best customer. Delmus, Rod, and RJ Conley come to mind.

    I'd say you're probably right about the Conleys being the best customer. I'd figure they're probably buying at least 8 new cars a year.
