    You got it! Lone Star JR Johnny Rutherford made his NASCAR debut in 1963 driving a Smokey Yunick 427 Mystery Motor Chevy, winning his qualifying race and finishing 9th in the 500. He made his Indy debut in May, finishing 29th in a Watson Offy. It would take Johnny 11 years to win at the Brickyard, but then he got hot and had three wins and a second in a seven year stretch.

    DRS3, the floor is now yours..........

    Jeff Gordon was on the pole and Dale Earnhardt was alongside him.

    You are half correct, Earnhardt started on the outside pole but Gordon started 3rd and won the race.

    That's too easy, but I'll let someone else answer. I just wanna say, the pole winner is one of the most underrated drivers in recent history! My favorite non-winner in the Cup Series (that's a hint)...

    Rick Mast won the pole.
    I thought that this may be a good time to again list the rules for playing Nascar Trivia. :)

    Name the 2 tracks that replaced North Wilkesboro in the Cup Series.
    One track replaced North Wilkesboro in the Spring race and one track replaced it in the fall race.

    New Hampshire -Fall race.
    Texas ? Spring race ? Not entirely sure without cheating and looking on Wikipedia, and I don't want to do that.

    MM, you are correct on both. It is now your turn to post a question.

    What position did Jeff Gordon start from when he won the 1996 Brickyard 400 ?
    Read closely.

    Which car number(00-99) has no wins and only has one top-five finish ever in the Cup Series?
     
  16. DRS3

    I'm going to guess number 70.

    Close, a few numbers down.

    8 days have gone by since you asked the Trivia question without an answer. Post the answer and then ask another question.

    I'll say 69.

    It was 65. I can’t think of one right now, I’ll let you have the next question if you want.

    Seven days have gone by with no response to posting a question. The Trivia is now open for anyone to post the next question.

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    Despite our pole-sitter not getting to turn a green flag lap today, I'll take the baton here and pose a question kind of pertaining to him.

    Ricky Stenhouse Jr. became the sport's most recent Mississippian to win in the sport's highest-ranking series with his wins at Talladega and Daytona in 2017. Who was the last driver from Mississippi to win a premier series race prior to Stenhouse's short resurgence?

    I found this one a little while back: During the 1987 Cup Season, which driver ran in 20 races, using the same exact car in all twenty events?
