Chugging Milk at the Brickyard: Indy 500 Trivia

The Indianapolis 500 is certainly the most popular and prestigious automobile race in the world. It has a very long history and it is a huge annual event that seats 257 325 patrons in person and attracts millions of viewers on television. I have been told that it is a 'bucket list' destination for many sports fans. The sound of the cars screaming past that sounds at incredibly high speeds is something that can only truly be experienced in person. I have seen the Honda Indy in Toronto, so I do in fact know how loud those cars are. It is something to be seen and heard to be believed. Are you an auto-racing 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.
