Answer to 3/28/08 "XX Marks The Spot Trivia"

We asked:  Can you name the driver behind the wheel of the #XX?
Answer:  Mike Kostic

When you're 13 or 14, and a car has a #XX, and the driver's last name is "KOSTIC" (as in "Caustic"), and the car he's driving looks pretty "wicked", you tend to notice.  I remember that Mike always had unique cars and here's just one example above.  Mike got out of the modifieds and currently runs on the URC circuit.

Answer to our 01/10/08 Trivia Question:
We asked "Can you name this current "Hammer Down" New Egypt Speedway driver?

Answer:  John Romano!

Pictured above (top) on the side of his dad's car, and then pictured above (working under his car sportsman car), we prefer John inside the car and in particularly, behind the wheel!  John has turned into one of the most exciting drivers to watch in any division and this year, fans are in for a real treat as John will not only be behind the wheel of his own sportsman #84, but also behind the wheel of the very potent Tony P owned #175 SS Sprint pictured below.

Due to a computer problem, we lost the list of those of you who had responded correctly, but we did manage to save the response we received from John's father below:

It's the boy who, I put in the driver's seat in that car at the top of my driveway and said "Daddy is gonna push as hard as I can and you have one shot to get in on the trailer, because Daddy can't push it back up again. He got it every time.

It's the boy that Rich Taylor and I took to Delaware and said, OK, John, you can take Rich's modified out in the hot laps, and when he was running the hot laps, with a tear in my eye, I said to Rich, "that's what it's all about, when your son takes over your seat."

It's the boy who, for his 18th birthday, I bought his first sportsman car for him and took all the good parts from my car and put into his. So, we planned on racing his car at EWS, but, as to be expected, it rained out opening night. So, we called Bridgeport to see if he could run with the sportsman. When we got there, I asked my good friends Roger Laureno and Scott Pursell to walk John around the race track. I told John that in the first heat to ride around the back of the pack and find yourself on the race track. He did well, but finished last.

But, that was only the beginning. He went out for the consi, started 16th, and within a few laps with the hammer down, went around the outside and went from 16th to 4th. That's when I knew he was a driver .

And, I remember the night that he called me at 12:30 and said, thanks for everything you taught me Daddy, I just got my first feature win at EWS.

I was never able to be in the winner's circle with all your wins to come, but, I have all the memories that helped you get there.
