This month the quizster was inspired to do his job thanks to the tardiness of the ESPN broadcast of the Saturday qualifying session of the second last NHRA National Event at Virginia Motor Sports Park. The show was supposed to come on the air at 10:00 PM CST. The quizster had the cooler full of adult beverages and a extra large bowl of popcorn. At the appropriate hour (10:01PM he turned to the ESPN2 channel anticipating the sight of and dulcet tones from Paul Page only to find out his drag racing was pre-empted by a football game, followed by a baseball show. At midnight the quizster had consumed all of the booze and eaten a ton of popped corn and still no drag racing. To retain his sanity he turned to working on this months quiz and had another hour and a half wait until the drag came on the air. Here’s this months quiz.
