Several of us got a bit off track over in the Which CW General Are You thread, and so are bringing our fun and games over here. Here's the quiz that got us started:

http://www.quizilla.com/users/Homebrewed/quizzes/Which%20NASCAR%20Driver%20Are%20You

I learned, much to my chagrin, that I am *gasp* Rusty Wallace!!

And as long as we've started this new topic, here's another "which driver are you" type of quiz.

http://quizfarm.com/quiz_repository/general/8721/

OMG! This time I'm Ricky Rudd!! But with a nice touch of the Intimidator! Yee-haa!!!


You scored as a Ricky Rudd

You're Ricky Rudd. A well-respected driver because of his attitude. However, you race him dirty, he'll do the same to you. He's raced for 30+ years, and has worked harder than anyone to be successful. Doesn't have a huge fan following, but his fans are loyal as anyone.


Ricky Rudd  85%
Ryan Newman
75%
Dale Earnhardt Sr. 75%
Tony Stewart 60%
Jeff Gordon 25%

Oh, cool! And we've both got a lot of Dale Sr., too! Thankfully, our Gordon quotient is low, too. That's good. ;)

Jeff Gordon:  a little white whine, lacking substance, and not very full-bodied....

He's one of the "old" drivers, came up in 1997 if I recall correctly. Here's a link to Ricky's official website:

First of all,  I made a boo-boo about Rudd. I meant to write that he came up in 1977, not '97.

Steve Park used to drive for DEI, but a serious head injury threw a monkey wrench in his career. He was driving in the truck series for a couple years, but I'm not sure what he's doing these days.

I am very proud to be Ricky Rudd.

Last year, he set the record for most consecutive starts ever, over 800, I think?  I need to refresh my self on all the facts, but he did something awfully special, and it was done and celebrated last year. 

Ironically, in that record setting race - if I recall correctly - he had a wreak and dislocated his shoulder, and finally missed a race!  In fact, he missed a few.  I think Kenny Wallace came in for him at least once?  Just not sure on that.

Don't want to be Kenny Wallace, although I like the guy OK...

We had a bad winter storm, lost power and were very cold, just got power back!

Later,

Joanie

Watch the Dale DVD, you will find out!  Steve Park's story is told on there, and he is interviewed.

Dale was, originally, an unknown driver that someone took a chance on, so after he made it, he wanted to take a chance on an unknown driver, and chose Steve Parks.  Steve did good until he had that wreak....

I've seen Dale on tv but never the whole thing at once. I should make a note to watch the entire thing

It is really, realy good.  It can be seen in it's entirety on CMT, just there are commercial breaks.

My 15-year-old daughter is pretty darn Yankee, very beautiful, and kind of elitist. She makes  fun of me for loving NASCAR, says things like, "but you can't be a fan, you have all your own teeth!"

However, the night that Dale showed on CMT, she was tired and laid down and put her head in my lap while I watched it.  She got really involved, and was SOBBING at the end. 

She (Young Miss) still likes to watch it, only won't watch the end.

And she thinks as highly (er, ah lowly) of NASCAR as Ole does!

Ha! I'm a Yankee through and through, and I love NASCAR! And don't even get me started on how much I cried when Dale died. I swear, I cried as much for Dale as I would have if I'd lost a family member.

Speaking of which, has anyone here read Sharyn McCrumb's book, St. Dale? If you're not familiar with it, here's a link to her website and info about the book. http://www.sharynmccrumb.com/st_dale.html

The story's about a pilgrimage made by a group of Dale's fans the year following his death. As I read the story, I easily saw myself in a number of her characters, saying to myself, "Yes, I remember doing that."
