    That was too easy!

    Hell, some of us can name every driver who ever raced for HMS, including the part-time guys with only a handful of starts. "Some of us" wink wink :D

    At this week's race at Dover, the Drydene 400, the #32 car driven by Corey LaJoie is sponsored by Drydene Performance Products.

    If Lajoie manages to win the race it will, of course, be considered quite an upset.

    What was the last race to be won by a car whose primary sponsor was the same as the sponsor of the race ?

    Extra credit: who drove the car and who was the sponsor ?

    since there has been no response from SB22 I will post an easy question.

    Who was the oldest driver to win rookie of the year and how old was he.

    Robert Pressley? 1995? Not sure how old he was. It may have been Craven that year anyway
     
  12. muggle not

    None of the answers are correct.

    You are correct. It is now your turn to post a question.
     
  15. 2 Sweet

    2 Sweet Legend

    I like the question @DRS3 came up with.... Rookie of the year winners from the state of Virginia? Hell, I have no idea. Ricky Rudd, Jeff Burton, Elliott Sadler are three of my guesses.....

    Are you asking a question? or giving a answer?
     
  17. 2 Sweet

    2 Sweet Legend

    It was DRS3's question. "Name 5 roty winners from VA."

    I don't know the answer, I just replied with my half assed guess.
     
  18. DRS3

    DRS3 Team Owner

    Hint alert... There's at least 8.....

    Bill Dennis, Ronnie Thomas, Lennie Pond + the four previously mentioned....., Hamlin, JBurton, Rudd, Hensley

    That is 7 drivers from VA that won ROTY. I don.t believe there are any others.

    2Sweet - since you and I both got about half the drivers correct why don't you go ahead and post the next question.
     
  26. 2 Sweet

    2 Sweet Legend

    Easy one....

    Who was the second crew chief (after Ray Evernham) to win a race with Jeff Gordon?
     
  27. muggle not

    That's it!

    @Formerjackman if you can think of a trivia question, you're up!
     
  33. Formerjackman

    Formerjackman Team Owner

    OK, here's one that combines two of my racing interests. Name two future Indy 500 winning drivers and one future 500 winning car owner who drove in the Daytona 500 BEFORE their first start at Indy.
     
  34. muggle not

    muggle not Team Owner

    John Andretti and Sam Hornish , jr
     
  35. Formerjackman

    Formerjackman Team Owner

    No. Both drove at Indy before driving stock cars.
     
  36. DRS3

    DRS3 Team Owner

    Dick Rathman ??
     
  37. Formerjackman

    Formerjackman Team Owner

    Not a bad guess, but Rathman drove at Indy before there even was a Daytona 500. A little side trivia, the Rathman brothers swapped identities when they were younger so that the younger Jim could race. (Age requirement). Dick was born James, and brother Jim, Indy 500 winner, was born Richard.
     
  38. DRS3

    DRS3 Team Owner

    Dan Gurney?? Parnellie Jones??
     
  39. Formerjackman

    Formerjackman Team Owner

    Congrats, you just got two out of three. Gurney ran the 1962 Daytona 500 in February driving a Ford for Holman-Moody. Despite several strong runs, Gurney failed to win the Indy 500 as a driver, but was the winning car owner in 1975 with driver Bobby Unser, and his Eagle chassis were among the very strongest cars in the early 70's.

    Parnelli Jones' first NASCAR start goes back to 1956, but he made his Daytona 500 debut in 1960 driving a Ford for long time backer Vel Miletich and made his first Indy 500 start in 1961 driving a Watson Offy for JC Agajanian.

    The final driver is from the same era and after a slow start to his career, became an Indy legend.
