Drivers are the stars of harness racing. The most famous driver is John Campbell, who has won more than $250 million in purses and was inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame at the age of 35. Dave Palone has won more than 12,000 races in his career. Tim Tetrick holds the record for wins (1,189) and earnings ($18.3 million) in a single season. Ron Pierce is also a Hall of Famer, and Brian Sears is perennially one of the top drivers at The Meadowlands.

While drivers are in the spotlight, some very talented trainers are sending out top racehorses year after year. Ron Gurfein and Bob McIntosh are both members of the Hall of Fame. Jimmy Takter has won many major stakes, including the Hambletonian and Little Brown Jug. He also trained top trotting mare, Moni Maker. And George Teague Jr. conditions some of the top stakes horses every year.
