The team announced four finalists for possible team names on May 1: Blue Racers, Chairmen, Drive, and Horsepower.
Fans were encouraged to vote for their favorites, but many were less than impressed with the four options.
A few pothole jokes are to be expected, but Grand Rapids Drive is a good choice.
Love the retro-style logo!
Congratulations to the Grand Rapids Drive!
It’s good to see another entertainment option in Grand Rapids.
