Jacques Villeneuve (Elder)

This is the brother of Gilles Villeneuve (Alouette, Ferrari).  These two brothers revolutionized snowmobile oval track racing.  Their design and innovations on the Alouette Twin Trackers once dominated pro events and prompted Ski Doo to build their own version in later years.  Now there's a book about "Jocko."  Cool.
After a terrible crash a couple years ago which left him severely broken . . . I know Jacques did race again.  However, age catches up with you . . . and while his stamina may not be the same . . . his determination has been unequaled in the sport of oval track ice racing.
