There are almost as many new faces on the Elite Series this year as there are veterans. And that's how the first Top 10 of the season broke down - 5 newcomers and 5 veterans. They range in age from 24-year-old rookie Patrick Walters to 72-year-old B.A.S.S. legend Rick Clunn. Average age: 42.
Interestingly, those newcomers occupy five of the top seven spots in the Day 3 standings: 1st place - Chris Johnston, 29 years old; 2nd - Patrick Walters, 24; 4th - Cory Johnston, 33; 6th - Lee Livesay, 33; and 7th - Scott Canterbury, 42.
