Answer to our 12/15/12 Trivia Question Brought to you by:

We Asked:  Who is that behind the wheel of this wild looking Syracuse contraption?
Answer:  Geoff Bodine at Syracuse, 1973
We had to do a little checking and were able to confirm that it's Geoff by comparing the helmet in the picture above to a picture of Geoff driving wearing the same helmet while behind the wheel of his #99 Valiant. (see below).  We also received the additional information regarding the photo: 
Driving the #0, Geoff Bodine was the 89th car to take time and turned lap 1 @ 38.826.

Correct Answers Received From:  Kevin Budden, Lester Potts, Joe Cryan, Pilgrum, Link Pettit, Rick Lugg, dwelty123,  Dan27 and Mike Clissold,

Answer to our 11/15/12 Trivia Question Brought to You By:
"Our Memories of George Koyt"

Friend of The Vault George Koyt spent many years taking pictures at his favorite tracks... as a fan... and nothing made him happier than seeing people's excitement when looking through his collection.  In this 2008 picture above, George shared a few of his images with Modified, Sprint and Winston Cup driver Tighe Scott while visiting New Egypt Speedway.

Our question from last week was:  "There were many racers that drove "Weld" Modifieds and many who raced "King" Modifieds.  Can you name 3 or more drivers that spent time behind the wheel of both, a Weld built modified and a King built modified?"

Correct Answers:  Gary Balough (Statewide Weld #3 & Ferriauolo King #73 and Fast Lane #31), Billy Osmun (Statewide Weld #3, Fast Company Weld #2 & Ferriauolo King #73 Scarmadella #121 King, Sammy Beavers (George Thode Weld #33 & Ferriauolo King #73), Stan Ploski (Weld #27 & #74 Trenton Mack #74), Frankie Schneider (Weld #2 and King #2), Anthony Ferriauolo IV also drove the King #73 and had "a lap" in the Fast Company #2 Weld car at OCFS but something happened and he had to pull off the track.  (AF-IV also drove the #73 "Torino" that was built on the Weld built #112 Batmobile frame, but as the pictures indicate above, we were really going for those that drove the traditional mid 70's style Weld built cars and the mid 70's King cars.)

Additional possibilities:  Carl Collis definitely had an original #12 King car, and also had a #12 that most think was a Weld car, but others have told us that it was a Weld copy.  (I don't know for sure, so maybe somebody associated with the team can give us some first hand info.)

We also had quite a few folks mention Billy Pauch and referred to the #99 "Weld" car and the #121 Scarmadella King car.   We are told that one of the #121's was a King car (the other was a copy made by Tommy Cimpko)
but the #99 was not a Weld car, and instead, was a Sonny Dornberger built car.
