    Here's something that's easy enough to look up but I thought it interesting none the less.

    What driver, on average, finished in 80th place in his NASCAR Cup start(s) ?

    You mean in races/finish ratio? Question not very clear pj.

    I didn't look it up at all, but every Sunday, me and old man would say, "How long before Michael brings out the caution", and he usually did.

    If in 3 races a driver finished 5th, 10th, and 15th, he averaged a 10th place finish.

    (5 + 10 + 15) / 3

    During his career in NASCAR Cup races, the driver in question averaged an 80th place finish.

    Granted, it's somewhat of a trick question but, then again, the numbers tell the story.

    Lee Connell finished 80th in his one and only Cup start, the 1951 Southern 500 at Darlington.

    Well, the man in question still did not finish last like Michael Waltrip has done many times!

    Who are the two current Cup NASCAR drivers who raced at North Wilksboro and whose fathers also raced at North Wilksboro?

    Chase Elliot is one, can't figure the other.

    Dave Blaney and Ryan Blaney. If this is incorrect it is because no reference books were used and tried to figure the answer from memory. :idunno:;)

    Or Randy Lajoie and son Cory.

    Yes Chase Elliott and Bill Elliott
    Ryan Blaney and Dave Blaney

    Chase and Ryan ran a late model race when North Wilksboro reopened for a short time in 2010 - 2011. Chase actually won a race there, something his dad never did.
    A lot of people don't realize that Dave Blaney's first cup race was at North WIllksboro in 1992. He didn't run another cup race until 1999.
    Of course Bill Elliott raced there many times.

    Not saying who is right or wrong, but Racing reference lists Dave Blaney's first start as Rockingham in 1992. Also a DNQ at Atlanta.

    You are absolutely correct! Why did I think it was NW? I guess in my mind I just lumped those two closed tracks together.

    And just when I was thinking my old, memory bank was working at top speed. Still, not bad for not using reference tools. That ...... response came strictly from memory. And to think yesterday it took me about ten minutes to remember the name of someone I've known since childhood and still in contact with. ;):idunno:

    Michael Waltrip had a pretty good career. I wish I had as much luck.

    Well I don't know if this is against the rules, but it's been awhile since anyone asked a question so...name the top 3 winningest drivers of the hendrick number 25 car

    Great question. I can only guess Kenny Schrader as one.

    Nice job, DIDIT and pjmolo, Richmond and Schrader are the only drivers of the 25 with more than one win so I guess it's maybe a bit of a trick question

    DIDIT and pjmolo, one of you ask a question since you both were correct in your answers.

    Anyone is permitted to post a question since the time limit has been exceeded by those that posted the correct answer. :)
    So I will put up a question. There is a lot of talk about Harvick winning many races this year. See if you can name the driver that in a single season won 11 races while only running in 18 races that entire season.

    Correct! Your go for posting a question. Questions don't have to be tough, just interesting. :)

    With all the talk about Chase Elliott's second place finishes, name a driver that finished 2nd four times in a ROW.

    That is one of at least two correct answers. Harry Gant also did it in 1985. The floor is yours.....

    (I’m new to this particular thread and this has most likely been asked before but anyway)

    What driver holds the record for the most Cup series starts without getting a top five?

    Danica?
     
  33. REBS31

    No, but since it’s been a few weeks I’ll go ahead and give the answer. Correct answer was Jimmy Means
