THE LOAD(ed) QUESTIONER

A CRAZY PUZZLE

In memory of my rocky December, I’m going to play with the “crazy” metaphor one more time. I’m going to try something a little different. Instead of the usual multiple choice set-up, I’m going to go with an even easier format … True or False. 10 queries that are answered by one of these two words. Simple  and to the point. Knock yourselves out.

#1 Rickie Smith, father of Pro Stock Bike ace Matt, is one of the genuinely great mountain motor Pro Stock, and for that matter, Pro Mod racers. He should be; He and Jesus were born the same day (NOT the same year, although Rickie does have a little gray in his beard.)
A True
B False

A True
B False

A True
B False
#5 Bob  Glidden built his sizeable Pro Stock reputation on the strength of his many wins with Ford. He also did well with a Plymouth Arrow, but those were the only two brands he ever raced professionally.

A True
B False
