  • Indy 500 on Jeopardy..........almost

    A question (answer) on tonights show.

    "In 1976 ,before Danica, Janet Guthrie became the first woman to qualify for this race"

    The first one to buzz in said "Daytona 500"

    The second contestant got it right.
    All roads lead to Indy except for State Road 39 which goes to Martinsville.

    "These cars are traveling faster than we can react" Eddie Sachs, race day 1964 (Indianapolis Times).

    I could join the "Mile High Club" without ever leaving my home.

      Um, except Guthrie didn't qualify for the 500 in 1976. She did in 1977.

      A few months after she became the first woman to qualify for the Daytona 500.
