I was inspired by a recent episode of the "KissFAQ Podcast" on YouTube where the guys were quizzed on the band Kiss. Go ahead and check it out!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJW8TTow6n0

They were asked 30 questions about "the hottest band in the world", but I'm not going to do 30 questions. No way, no how. I think 15 is more plenty. So, these questions deal with races from last season and some cool other stuff. I'll reveal the answers later. Good luck!

1. How many sprint cars were there on the first night of Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic at Cottage Grove on May 27?

2. Two-time ASCS national champion Sam Hafertepe, Jr. was the winner of the last two editions of the Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup. Sam has a lot of success at Skagit Speedway, as he picked up his first WoO win in 2011. Who was he driving for?

3. Former ASCS champ Aaron Reutzel has announced he's switching gears to run with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions this season. He has partnered up with what fellow Texan to form a new race team?

4. Roger Crockett won Fred Brownfield Classic at Grays Harbor Raceway on July 1. He was on his way to win the first Brownfield Memorial with the ASCS in 2009, but he was DQ'ed for being underweight. Who ended up being the winner?

5. World of Outlaws racer Daryn Pittman set a new track record at GHR at 11.716 seconds on September 4. Who was second fastest?

6. In the season opener with the Summer Thunder Sprint Series and the Washington Modified Tour at Yakima on March 31, there were some families that raced together. There were brothers in the sprint cars (Chase and Reece Goetz) and a father-and-son duo in the mods (Craig and Kyler Moore). Name the husband-and-wife team in the mods.

7. This modified racer has won two races at GHR in the last two seasons, and he's won it on the last corner in both cases. Name him.

8. Tom Sweatman has won how many track championships at GHR?

9. This street stock regular at GHR brought in a modified on May 20 and it was his first mod start in nearly 20 years. Who is he?

10. The Northwest Focus Midgets had a very strong field of drivers in 2017. Name the only driver that doesn't live in the Pacific Northwest that won a race.

11. Who was the midget racer who got married during the summer?

12. The midgets made their first appearance at Silver Dollar Speedway for the Fall Nationals on September 29 and 30. Who won the main events for both nights?

13. Chance Crum had a very productive 2017 season with wins in midgets and mini sprints. How many victories did he have in all?

14. Garrett Thomas won the midget title at GHR, while Tristin Thomas claimed the championship at Skagit. Who was the midget champion at Deming Speedway?

15. Everyone at NWRaceTalk.com has their own little quirks. Who on this board is a former R/C car series champion? You can say the person's name and/or username.

It's time for the answers. How well did you do?

1. 41...to match Marvin's car number.

2. Kevin Rudeen. When you win $20,000, you can't go wrong.

3. Josh Baughman. Baughman made that announcement on December 29, as Reutzel is making the jump to 410 racing.

4. Travis Rilat. Crockett was seven pounds underweight, handing the $10,092 top prize to the Forney, Texas racer.

5. Brad Sweet, Pittman's teammate. "The Big Cat" tied the old track record of 11.750 that was set by Joey Saldana on September 7, 2015. Pittman came out two cars after Sweet and both of his laps beat the old mark (11.742 and 11.716).

6. Grey and Kersey Ferrando. They welcomed a baby boy just before Christmas. Congrats! :)

7. Lane Zerbin. He squeaked by Zack Simpson on August 27, 2016 for his first career win at GHR. Last year, Zerbin did the same thing to Kyler Moore on September 3 after starting in the 16th positon and winning the B-Main.

8. 3. Sweatman has won the modified title the last two years, along with a hobby stock title back in 1989.

9. Jason Tole. He made five starts in a modified in '17, with his best finish being a sixth on July 8.

10. Ross Rankine. The Noblesville, Indiana racer took the Fred Brownfield Tribute #92 car to a very memorable first career win with the Northwest Focus Midgets at Skagit Speedway on May 6. :cool:

11. Katie Jackson (formerly Turner). Katie and her husband Jeff tied the knot on August 27.

12. Chance Crum and Colton Heath. The midgets are heading back to Chico for the Fall Nationals on September 28 and 29 to end their 2018 season.

13. 16. Chance also turned in his first win in a sprint car at Electric City Speedway on September 2. :) It happened in night number two of the Montana Roundup, and it was an ASCS Frontier Region/NSA Sprint Cars race.

14. Nate Vaughn. He won the championship by just nine points over Nick Evans.

15. Racer4u (me). I won the Novice title in the first ever Northwest Offroad Series in 1993-1994 by only one point. :D It was an eight-race series and I won twice. I competed in Olympia, Puyallup, Tacoma (two different places), and Aberdeen. Of those five places, just one is still around today. :(
