    Good guess, but wrong, at least not doncumented.

    Hint: It is a driver out of the northeast.
     
  14. the pawn

    Here is the answer:
    Geoff Bodine, Chemung Speeddrome, Chemung, NY. He did it because his parents (builders and owners of the track) did not want hm to race full size cars.

    For those of you that don't know of Geoff, he is the older brother of pace car driver Brett Bodine.
    A few stats: Cup; 575 starts, 18 w's, 100 T 5's, 190 T 10's. Best points finish, 3rd in 1990. Avg start pos, 14., avg finish 18.6.

    Guiness book of world records: 1978, most wins in 1 season by driver, 55 w's in 84 starts. In a modified.

    Geoff, Bob Cuneo of Chassis Dynamics and Whelen Engineering, designed and manufacture the Bo-Dyn bobsleds for the U S olympic teams.
    The sleds are provided to the teams at no charge.

    There's you a little trivia on Geoff.

    Don't forget, he survived the worst truck wreck ever at Daytona. I was there, felt the heat off the flame. How he survived is purely by the grace of God.
     
  16. Yeah & he also won the infamous Earnhardt/Rudd SOB race in 1989 that ultimately cost Sr that seasons championship...

    GAME RULES.

    Rules: Questions can only be on Nascar Cup racing. The person that lists the question must confirm the answer of the person quessing correctly before that person lists his question. I will list the first question and make it an easy one.

    Added clarifications:
    A person has the privilege of asking a Trivia Question only after they correctly guess the answer of the previous question AND after the answer has been confirmed by the person that asked the question.
    People have 3 days to post a question after they correctly guess the previous question and after their answer has been confirmed by the person that asked it. There is also a 3 day time limit to confirm answers to a question.
    All questions are to be associated with Nascar Cup racing. The object of the Trivia is to have fun and learn some interesting facts......and not to post questions that are next to impossible to answer. Common sense and politeness is also nice to use while playing the Trivia.

    Correct. 216.309 with a trap speed of 228 mph. All the stories I'm seeing are saying June 9, 2004. I thought it was after he retired, but maybe not. I know he tested for Kez at Daytona a few years ago.

    What was unusual about Wendell Scott's win at the 1963 Jacksonville 200?

    As I recall from reading about it somewhere, NASCAR initially awarded the victory to second place finisher Buck Baker and after later correcting it, blamed the mistake on a "scoring error" whereas it's generally believed that the NASCAR "powers that be" at the time didn't want a black guy in Victory Lane.

    Considering that, being the deep thinker that he is, he never seems to be positive about anything so we can rule that out. :D

    Oddly enough, you're correct on the Rh factor. It is indeed negative.

    There is at least one sporting venue that has hosted a points paying NASCAR Cup race and an NFL regular season game.

    Name it.

    Hint: The two events didn't happen in the same year.

    Soldier field. ..
     
  38. pjmolo

    pjmolo Director of driver attitude adjustments . . .

    Correct.

    In a race won by Fireball Roberts, Soldier Field in Chicago hosted it's one and only Cup race on July 21, 1956.

    The Chicago Bears at that time played their home games at Wrigley Field (home of the Cubs).

    The Bears began playing their home games at Soldier Field beginning with the 1971 season and, with the exception of 2002 when the place was being rebuilt, have played their home games their ever since.

    Your turn to ask a question, @DRS3.
