    Entertainer of the year ricky Hutton just shows true dedication for example when he took on a team of bears on his own at mildenhall and ash Riley was supposed to be banned and Ricky told them not too because he can’t smash him up if his cars on the lorry 👌🏼 Always keen to pull his car no matter what state it’s in 👌🏼

    397 Daz Linton
    I see this boy (I can call him that because I am his in week out working during the day and spending all his spare time dedicated to not only building his car and other Team Joker Cars but travelling the country to take part in races. He eats, sleeps and I am sure he s&@ts stock cars and has done from a very young age… he is a peer mentor/tutor to his wee nephew Rocco and is happy to regale us with tales of smashes and politics of the sportvat the drop of a hat.
