“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Zub Ferrell's passion is driving through the mud and muck of mega truck competitions. But this week he has embraced another mission: using his huge rig to save flood victims stranded after monster storm Harvey.
From his unusually high perch above the road, the crane operator drove his truck, named Old Habits, deep into Texas floodwaters on Friday -- part of an extra-high-clearance four-wheel force that has descended on Port Arthur's hard-hit neighborhoods to shuttle hundreds of people to safety.
"You have people hugging you, we've had people try to pay us. We're not taking any money. The hugs and watching a grown man cry when you come save him -- it's all worth it," Zub said.
