OK, what was it that Dale Earnhardt said to Jay Leno when asked about being the second winner of the brickyard 400?
:cheers:&nbsp; :cheers:&nbsp; :cheers:
racer8, seems like you stumped us. :huh: How about giving us the answer and then posting another question. :) [/b][/quote]
Since Jeff Gordon won the frist Brickyard 400, Dale's answer to Leno's question was, " I'm the first man to win it".


Next question: where did Alan Kulwicki win his first Winston cup race?

AJ Foyt won 7 "Cup" races over his 30 years competing in NASCAR races while never running more than 7 races in a single season.

AJ Foyt won three times at Daytona in his career.

What was the SHORTEST track where AJ won a "Cup" race?

Atlanta in 1971?
Correct. The 1.522 mile track at Atlanta is the shortest track AJ Foyt won a "cup" race on.

Got me stumped. Remember that the Trivia Quiz is limited to the Nascar Cup series.

I show 2 wins by the "0" car.

9/11/1960 at California State Fairgorunds in Sacremento, California Jim Cook won from the pole.
5/13/1966 at Starlight Speedway in Monroe, North Carolina Darel Dieringer won from the 20th starting position.


So the answer to the question is ....

Darel Dieringer, 1966, Stralight Speedway in Monroe, North Carolina.

Close enough. That was the first Talladega race in 1984. The second Talladega race had 68 cautions.

Your turn.
