Which driver has the all time record for the best average starting position?
Based on how many starts?
If a driver only started 3 races and qualified in the top 3 each time, would he have the all time record for the best average starting position?
This driver has over 100 starts.
David Pearson's is pretty good, he's my guess.
Dick Hutcherson... started 103 races from 1964-67, 14 wins, 21 poles and an average starting position of 4.87
Riiiight llol forgot Im supposed to ask another one.....
Which driver has the most lead lap finishes on road courses?
Yup... ur up
Which driver has the most last place finishes?
I'm gonna just take a shot in the dark & say J.D. McDuffie, all due respect of course...
i agree, i think J.D. if not him Joe Nemechek
J.D. has 32 last place finishes, last row Joe takes the cake with 33.
Your up Pudge.
youngest championship winning crew chief in cup
Kirk Shelmerdin (sp?)
I'm not looking these up, I retain a ton of useless knowledge.
Going on a limb here but Chad Knaus was pretty young when JJ won in '06.
Dale Earnhardt's 1980 crew chief Doug Richert, he was ony 20 years old... I dunno if it's not him...
correct, he didn't even start the season as crew chief
I was thinking race winning crew chief. Oops.
I can't think of anything to ask right now so I open the floor to anyone who wants to take my turn...
Ok, I will post a question from the "old days"
What Nascar driver put a rental car in a Daytona pool so that he would not have to return it to the rental agency. Hint he is from the earlier days of Nascar.
does R Clarence like this driver
Wild guess...Fireball Roberts or Tiny Lund.
Nope, but they would have been good candidates.
Joe Weatherly.....he was racing with Curtis Turner back to the motel and waited to the last minute to break, and it was to late, slid the car into a pool. they had bet smokes or liquor, or something like that on who won
Weatherly sounds good ...if that isn't it I'll guess Finch or the Wood brothers.
No to both Weatherly and Finch, according to my information........unless there were two drivers that put the rental car in the pool.
i was pretty sure Joe went into a pool at daytona, i remember seeing a segment on tv and that and the time Ron Hornaday slept on a mattress that had a dead body inside it. my memory is getting bad though.
The book on Nascar history that I read states that Fred Lorenzen put a rental car in a Daytona pool so that he didn't have to return it to the rental agency.
Go ahead pudge and post the next question as you may also be correct.
Richard Petty posted a true "stock car" (possibly a rental) when he had his trailer bringing his real race car in to Daytona...you can look it up.
Good ole Fred.
or you gonna be mad if i don't have a question ready..i'm polluting the thread ain't i. i like trying to answer, but it doesn't work that way.
besides i was wrong. Fred and Joe, were friends, maybe it was Joe telling the story about Fred. i did search it after you said i was wrong and i didn't get nothing back at all. heck i thought it was on a bet, not on purpose, didn't mean to ruin your question.
I would think that I was in the ballgame too...and I have a question all set up - but if somebody else answers it correctly I would screw pudge...so anyway "what ex-nascar driver ran the fastest 500 mile race in racing in history?"
fine with me.
