Here are all the goats [UPDATED]

Because Drew Magary cannot into racing (unless he steps foot on this forum), I have taken the opportunity to name some GOATs in select classes of motorsport. My takes are captioned.
WARNING: The takes here will be piping hot. Prepare yourself.

Alex Zanardi, who makes me unworthy
And finally, Leena Gade, who’s simply the boss.

This list is created entirely to start some shit-talkking, so stir shit, y’all, and tell Stef or anyone else back at Jalopnik to rip my picks to shreds. More will be added in the comments area.
DISCLAIMER: not all of the goats and GOATs are in this list. You were misled, bitch. Clickbait FTW!!!
