Town that has the best modified drivers

Last year I saw a cool thread on Facebook that mentioned the talent that came out of Sanborn, NY (Treichlers, Iulg, etc.) and thought how cool that must've been back in the prime of auto racing. They may not have the national notoriety like that of Cook and Evans, but still an awesome amount of talent from there.
 
How about Northampton PA? Tony and Matt Hirschman, Eric and Austin Beers

Riverhead - Charlie Jarzombek, Eric Goodale, Kevin Goodale, Dave Sapienza, Jr Ambrose, Roger Turbush, Chris Turbush, Chris Young and his son Chris Young, Tommy Rogers
 
How about Davey Moore Joe Plazek and Pete Bicknell from the Niagara area of Ontario. Mat Williamson is a young gun that is very tough to beat. Also Stuart Friesen started racing in Niagara before he moved to the big leagues.
