KING KENNY QUIZ
In keeping with the theme of "one racer, one quiz,"
we present this month's second quiz. The subject is Kenny
Bernstein, arguably the most influential "post Garlits"
Nitro Professional of them all. Truly one who took the sport
to the proverbial Next Level, Bernstein must be given his
due. So here is an eight-pack of Big Bud quiz questions, as
only DRO can provide.
