  • This is "JEOPARDY"!!

    I caught the last part of a 500 Question on the program and "I think" it went like this:

    George Robson won the race in 1946 with 1 of only 2 winning cars that had 6 of these?

    Well the answer for many of us is pretty easy, but can anyone name the year and driver of the other car?-I am curious to know.

    Must be cylinders. Ray Harroun in 1911 with the Wasp would be the other.

            Pretty sure Ray is Paul Tracy's cousin...or brother-in-law...something like that. I met him once in the paddock at Long Beach. Nice guy.

              A+ for putting it in the form of a question, as per Jeopardy convention.

                I have a customer, currently called up to active duty in Afghanistan, who is Ray Harroun's great-great nephew (is that how you say that?). Same last name. I've told him he has a standing invite to Camp and Brew. -cap

                    There were cars in the '40's with six wheels, also. They didn't win the Race or even do too well, however.
                    Have a very blessed day!

                      Yeah, that was the first thing that popped into my head.
                      No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

                        Sarah Fisher was a question on Jeorpardy awhile back...I think it was something like, Who was the youngest female to compete in the Indianapolis 500...
