IN SUPPORT OF THE VANISHING BREED
In case you haven't read the fine print on the Master Agreement that covers the sale of the National Hot Rod Association's racing half, sportsman racers are an endangered species. At least as far as racing at national events is concerned - if you believe the buzz -if you can read between the lines - if Kreskin is on your speed dial - whatever. Just in case the unimaginable happens, and sportsman racers at some point lose their place in their special ring of the Dante's Inferno that is life at an NHRA national event (when you are a sportsman racer,at least), The Quizzter has decided to feature NHRA sportsman racers as the quiz subject(s) until further notice. Or until the Large Editor reigns the Quizzter in! So while it lasts,come and get it! The quiz, that is.
Congratulations to our June quiz winner, Christopher Holley! And now, here are the June quiz answers.
