    Trivia

    Some of you know I have a trivia game on my forum. Let's start a thread here. The rules are simple. It starts with one question. The first reply with the right answer gets the floor for a new question. It continues like that unless, A) the person who has the floor doesn't ask a new question, or B) no one gets the correct answer. In that case, the person with the floor asks a new question. No more than one question on the floor at a time, and discussion/clarification is welcome until the floor is taken over by a new question.

    We're not keeping points, just for fun.

    Questions must be automotive or racing related.

    I'll ask the first question and whoever answers it correctly askes the next, and so on.

    Here we go..

    First question: In the 1952 Indy 500, what type of fuel was burned in the record-setting pole-position #28 car? Hint: it won pole position by a full 4 mph over the second-place Ferrari

    Just to get this started, I'll give it to you since you had the fuel correct.

    Pole position: Fred Agabashian - 4:20.85 (4 laps)
    Agabashian's Cummins Diesel Special was the first entry in the Indianapolis 500 to be powered by a turbocharged engine (then described as "turbosupercharged"). Gear-driven centrifugal blowers known as "superchargers" had been used since the 1920s to increase the volumetric efficiency and power output of racing engines, but the Cummins Diesel was the first to make use of the "free" energy contained in the engine exhaust stream to drive a turbine wheel connected to a centrifugal blower (thus, "turbo-supercharging").

    hammertime the floor is yours to ask a question.
