    Was thinking about starting a 3rd Nascar Trivia. Anyone interested?

    There will be 4 questions plus 1 bonus question each week.

    All 4 questions and bonus question will be in the same post.

    I will try to get this post done at the beginning of each week. (Monday)

    I will post the correct answers at the end of the week if they all have not been answered correctly (Saturday)

    I will give 1 point to the 1st person to post a reply with the correct answer and 2 points for the correct answer to the bonus question. With the 1st reply being board time in the thread.

    The most points that one person can get in that week is 6 points if that person gets all right before anyone else does.

    I would like to take this trivia all the way to the beginning of the 2007 season (Daytona 500).

    Any member can join in the trivia at any time, but will be playing catch up.

    At the end of the trivia, I will award 1 gold coin for 1 point to each person
    ( 1 point = 1 gold coin).

    This is just for fun.

    How about it? any gold hungry takers?

    Gary's right, you can use any resources available to you. Beating the competition to the answer is the key.

    1. Category Drivers:

    This is a 2 part question, must have both parts correct to get credit for the point.

    What 2006 Nextel Cup rookie lost his ride after only making 6 out of 8 races at the beginning of the season?


    Who were the first two drivers to replace him?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. Multiple Choice:

    Where was Richard Petty's home, growing up as a kid?

    A) Randleman, North Carolina
    B) Randleman, South Carolina
    C) Level Cross, North Carolina
    D) North Wilkesboro, North Carolina
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. Category Garage Talk:
    Fill in the blanks ( two words ).

    What is the term used when following another vehicle closely, the airflow off the lead vehicle does not travel
    across the following one(s) in a normal manner? Therefore, downforce on the front of the trailing vehicle(s) is
    decreased and it does not turn in the corners as well, resulting in an
    "-------- -------." This condition is more
    apparent on the exit of the turns.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4. Category Tracks:
    In 2004, an F2 tornado had blazed through the track, causing tens of millions of dollars in damage less than four months before that yearýs fall race. Miraculously, the track was more than ready for that October race, and it went off without a hitch. What is the name of this track?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BONUS QUESTION:

    Who is the driver in the picture below?
