STRAIGHT OUT OF THE HEARTLAND

The Quizzter is a strange animal - part scavenger, part eco-conscious conservationist. To put it succinctly, he uses what he has on hand. For this month's quiz, what he has on hand is a program from last weekend's NHRA event at Heartland Park Topeka. Delivered by secret messenger and sealed hermetically in an old mayonnaise jar on the Quizzter's front porch, it contains the secrets to success for this month's quiz. So if you weren't in Topeka, you are officially behind the power curve. Get upon the tire, and figure it out! Now!

MAY QUIZ ANSWERS

  1. Q# 1 Keeping in mind there were two different American Hot Rod Associations, who is on the books as the first President of the first AHRA?  C WALTER MENZER

    Q# 2 Not counting anything that ever happened at Spokane Raceway Park, where was the last AHRA Grand American event held? D EUNICE, LOUISANNA

    Q# 3 AHRA made a lot of history in its day, perhaps most notably with Don Garlits and his Professional Racers Association. What year did the two entities team up to present the first ever AHRA/PRA National Challenge event? C 1972

    Q# 4 After the death of Jim Tice, Sr., and subsequent sale of the company to businessman Jim Gray, most of the AHRA track owners split and formed their own sanctioning body. With a mid-season startup in 1984,where did the new  ADRA hold it's first event? A DRAGWAY 42

    Q# 5 For many of us here at Drag Racing Online, St. Louis (now Gateway) International Raceway has been a personal touchstone of sorts. From the days of fire burnouts by Big Daddy, 3 AM nitro qualifying sessions, and no track-side guard rail to hide behind, "The Swamp" did it's part to launch a career or two. So who was the last driver to win Top Fuel at a St. Louis based AHRA Grand American event? D GENE SNOW
