Pilots or crew chiefs. My grandson Wyatt would like to crew this season. He has experience including crewing for several local pilots. You may remember him as the smaller one of my 2 grandsons. Since these pictures he has grown to be over 6 feet tall. He's played on the Scio High School football and basketball teams as well as wrestling and is very strong. He is 17 years old and has his own car. Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks
Wyatt's phone number is 541 971-8800
