Our fill-in-the-blank expert is Jim Moe, with a best four out of five correct. Read on for the correct answers.

1.) Dave Settles is the only guy to win back-to-back NHRA Division 4 Top Fuel titles in 1973-1974. He has a Master’s degree in Engineering from a famed Arizona college.

2.) “T.V.” Tommy Ivo and Mike Snively aboard “Diamond” Jim Annin’s dragster ran the first two fives in the sport’s Top Fuel history in late 1972. The next one came from a veteran Southern California driver named Don Moody (in the Walton-Cerny-Moody dragster).

3.) Everyone is awaiting the soon-to-be done 4.6-second run by a Funny Car. Mike Brotherton ran Top Fuel’s first 4.6-second run in 1994.

4.) This Top Fuel racer finished in second place in the NHRA top 10 standings in 1992, 1995, 1997 and 1998. Sometimes, (this writer) thinks that ole Cory McClenathan is badly overlooked.

5.) These guys are tremendously successful Division 4 Alcohol Funny Car racers. However, Jackie and Ronnie Stidham are not necessarily the most famous people in their family. Their dad, Jack Sr., was a fiddler for many years in the Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, one of country music’s most famous and legendary bands.
