Answer to iour 2/10/11 Trivia Question Brought To You By:

 


We asked, "Can you name the driver behind the wheel of the #57 above?"

Answer:  Mike Grbac  (A lot of you picked up on Mike's unique helmet style in the Hank Winecker provided photo above.)

Speaking of Mike's helmet, here's a story from John Larsen: 
I remember that helmet well but I remember Mike telling my father and I the story behind it more. We were standing outside in front of the garage bays at
Emmett's when Mike walked up with a helmet box. He said he wanted to show my father something. I wasn't "allowed" to see it so I had to take a few steps away....lol. It seems that Mike had embraced the whole "bad boy-villain image" that was tagged on him after the Tasnady incident. He told my dad if they want to make him into a villain he would look like one......lol. He had painted the helmet black and had that "dick dasterdly" mustache gold leafed on the chin and of course the middle finger on the back.

Answer to our 1/25/11 "Switch-A-Roo" Trivia Question brought to you by:

We asked, "Name a driver that drove a car with the same number "reversed"...  Example:  Stan Ploski drove the #47 (Emmett Alfrey Gremlin), and also drove the #74 Trenton Mack car..... Remember, it has to be the same driver, with 2 "differently numbered cars" that are the same when switched around."

Remember, it has to be the same driver, and it has to be the numbers "reversed" - two different cars.  I can think of a few more, but its tougher than you think... And be warned... you'll be thinking about it, trying to come up with examples for a while... The only rules is that the #'s have to be different so #11, #22, #33, etc are out, and you can use 3 digit #'s, but it can't be a # that is the same backward and frontward such as #292, #707, #808, etc because it doesn't result in two "differently numbered cars".  Other than that, name the driver and the "set" of "reversed" numbers that he drove... and have fun thinking about it!
