About This Quiz

Start  your engines! Once you're all revved up, tell us about about your driving habits, put yourself in the driver's seat of a NASCAR car and don't look back. We'll get a good sense of how you are on the road and how you would fare in the Daytona 500! Would you place as high as Richard Petty or Dale Earnhardt, Jr.? This quiz will let you know. 

An American tradition born out of bootlegging moonshine, NASCAR has become one of the greatest sports to glue us to television sets. Whether you drive like your grandma or you are always running behind, we'll be able to place you up there with driving legends. We won't make you sit through laps and laps of questions, but we do suggest buckling yourself in for safety and keeping your hands inside the vehicle at all times. Once we get a feel for your road warrior style, we'll tell you what size trophy you get to take home. 

You might not think you have it in you to become a legendary Daytona 500 winner, but we would like to be the judge of that! Are you the right combination of daredevil and level-headed to win? Let's go racing and find out!
