Bump Drafting, Dirty Air, & Restrictor Plates: NASCAR Trivia Part 2

Bump Drafting, Dirty Air, & Restrictor Plates: NASCAR Trivia Part 2

When I was a little kid, I would watch auto racing on television. Like a lot of young and casual observers, I was more interested in the crashes than the actual races. As an adult, I very rarely watch any sort of racing. I have probably only watched even a bit of a NASCAR race 2 or 3 times in the last decade. However, in the southern USA, NASCAR is an enormously popular sport. This quiz is mainly about NASCAR families, racetracks, and pit crews. Are you a dedicated NASCAR fan?

Dave Morrissey

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
