Answer to our 11/12/06 "Something Old... and Something Older!" Trivia Questions brought to you by:
We know that some of you like your trivia from the 50's and 60's... and some prefer the 70's or 80's, so this week we figured we'd bring you one of each:
Question #1: We asked: "Can you name the driver of this unique looking #747?"
Correct Answer: Jimmy Klim - Many of you also added that Sammy Beavers may have taken this car out a time or 2 and the car was reported to be very, very fast as some have said that Jimmy Klim was ahead of his time when it came to car design. Heard that once he got out of racing, he took his talents to a higher level and became involved with flying. Some also added that this is the car that later became the #39 driven by Sonny Riddle.

Up, Up and Away Trivia! (10/22/06)
Usually the action was on the track Flemington, but here's a little over the track action that we were wondering if any of you guys out there could remember...
Answer: Bob Correll and his "Kite Cycle"
Correct answers received from: Paul Madsen, Bill Hanna, John Lengenfelder, Tim Fritts, Ned Stites III, Fred Voorhees, Bob and Rich Caramella, Lenny Swider, Kevin Inglin, Richard Pearson, Wes Suydam, Dave Suchy,
We also asked what other "side attractions" you remembered being presented at your favorite local speedway. Here's what you guys came up with:
Bob Becker: I remember ostrich races, and a strongman at EWS that tried to hold back Fred Dmuchowski's modified.
Bill Hanna: Some other side-shows that Paul had at the "square" included Benny the Bomb (who blew up himself in a crate", the Amazing Neil (who drove the pace car around the track blind-folded with Paul in the car as a passenger", as well as Nazareth always having a annual showing of The Jack Kochman "Hell-Drivers" (just like Chitwood's show).
Barry Pursell: I remember the jack kochman tournament of thrills ..the hurricane hell drivers joey chitwood thrill show.and last but least an Ostrich race yes 3 wide i have a picture in one of my pit stop magizines of jack ziener street stock champion on one of these bad boys.
Mark Nipps: I remember the Jack Kochman thrill show at Nazareth, Joie Chitwood, the Walenda's high wire act, Benny the Bomb, mud wrestling and the always attended 4th of July fireworks at East Windsor.
Rob Renninger: I always thought of Jerry Fried at Nazareth was the king of "side attractions". Running on a Sunday evening good old Jerry had to come up with one gimmick after another to get fans in the stands. Running on a Sunday night when the races would not end until way after midnight during the Nazareth heyday of the 1960's was hard on the working man.. or as in my case.. the hard working high school student. Here are a few things Jerry came up with:
URC Sprint Cars, USAC Midgets, AMA motorcycles, Joie Chitwood Thrill Show, The Uni-Roy-Al thrill show featuring Jake Plumstead of Joie Chitwood fame, Dune Buggy races running on the main straight and making a left turn into
the infield and jumping over poorly built dirt ramps, FIREWORKS!!, Stock Car Rides for the kids, The Wild Animal Show featuring Ostrich races with modified drivers riding on the back of ostriches. , Figure 8 Races in the infield, Demo derbys
Sports Car races...UGH..., modified team races, Awful rock stars performing on the start-finish line at intermission (one was so bad a fan jumped on the starters stand and waved the black flag), The All-American Hell Drivers, Parachute jumpers landing on the main straight, Danny Fleanor Hell Drivers, Running "strictly stocks" in the opposite direction in the early 1960's, Tastycake giveaways, Scout nights, college nights, military nights, Quarter Midget races on the home stretch
Circus acts like a high wire act or some guy standing on a pole 50 feet above the finish line., I remember seeing a guy shot out of a cannon, Jack Kochman Hell Drivers, A guy that would blow himself up..."Benny the Bomb", Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, Drag Races on the main straight
I know there are most likely more, but my brain hurts from in thinking of
all of these.

Answer to our 8/20/06 Trivia Question: "What's Wrong With This Picture" Brought to you by
We asked: "Can you tell us who this is, what he's doing, where he's doing it... and why?"
Correct Answer: Les Katona... Driving in a special "Reverse" or "Clockwise" Feature Event.... at Flemington Speedway.... because back in the dirt days, Paul Kuhl would come up with special events to keep the show exciting.
Take a good look at this picture and think of all the things that had to be considered to make the car work going in this direction... Stagger, weight points, springs, shocks, fuel pickup, oil pick up... not to mention, it just plain looks weird seeing a car drifting in this direction! One of our Vault Visitors added that he thinks the reason that they eventually stopped running these reverse events was due to safety regulations with the NJ State Police regarding the design of the openings in the inside wooden fence and the increased hazard presented by them. The fence was designed with some consideration given to a car hitting an opening from the counter-clockwise direction, and the possibility of them striking the openings from the opposite direction was too dangerous.

Question 2: We asked: "Can you name the driver of the #S1 and the Speedway?"
ANSWER: Howard "Stubby" Stevens
Here's the story from the Vault Visitor Michael Kent who is the grandson of the driver: "Everyone remembers Jackie Moschera as the driver of the S-1. The car pictured above was actually originally owned and driven by my grandfather, Howard "Stubby" Stevens, in different versions, from 1955, until about 1962. This photo was taken at New Egypt (Ft. Dix), when the track was owned by Frank Myronchuk around 1956. We believe this may be an Ace Lane Sr. photo."

Answer to our Trivia Question Posted 7/17/06:
"Seeing Seeing Double Double: We asked, "How many drivers can you name in this great Ace Lane Jr. photo featuring matching #24's!"
Answer: Jimmy Brenn (inside), Ken Brenn Jr., (outside), not sure of blue/gray car on the outside, Larry Kline #A, Carmen Scarpati or Al Michalchuk #11 (owned by Tony K.), Joe Zuczek #27, and Dom Buffalino #2B. This one was a little tricky because there's a mix of Modifieds and Sportsman so it must have been taken during warmups.
