Terry McCarl?



Terry's father Lenard was in the military.....I'm doubting Terry was born in Iowa, but not sure.

This birthplace business is going to erode a whole lot of Posse-claimed wins. Tread carefully here. wink

Super Chuck says he'll take "Iowa WoO Winners" for $400, Alex.  Who is Mike Brooks?

So we have 2 so far, with McCarl still in question. At that rate, we'll have enough to fill out a Jeopardy category in somewhere around 50 years.

Mike Brooks does not have a World of Outlaws win.  He won a preliminary night at Manzanita in 1978, and a preliminary night at the Nationals in 1980.  Not counted as official WoO wins.

Based on the WoO win list I’m counting 21 from Posse land. That doesn’t include Tim Sheaffer and Ed Lynch Jr from western Penna.

And people told me the demographics between Pennsylvania and Iowa were so similar when Badlands was going against Knoxville. I know I know don't bring it up. Just goes to show you there are a lot fewer race teams from Iowa (especially high dollar ones) when compared to Pennsylvania.

Need to consider the population also. 2013 Census: Pennsylvania 12,773,801 / Iowa 3,090,416. Just sayin'...z

Wow Rocky Hodges with one career win is the answer pending as someone said T Mac if he was born in the US. I didn't know Lenard spent time in the military, thanks for the heads up.

When you are counting population of Pa. consider the cesspools at the Eastern and Western ends of Pa. aren't where the sprint car racing takes place. That is where a large percentage of Pa. people are but  the Sprint Car racing takes place in a few mostly rural counties of Southeastern Pa.

Geographic boundaries of “Posse land” where the majority of owners and drivers reside is limited to 12 (arguably) counties in southeastern Penna. 2015-2016 population 2,528,095. I doubt anyone in Philly even knows what a sprint car is.

     My bad. I thought this was just a general interest / trivia thing, not an invintation to join in another worthless pissing contest.

From the WoO website, here are the totals of WoO final night feature wins per home state of the driver. To be honest, I only went through the top 20 (Top 21 actually, as #20 is a tie). This doesn't take into account a bunch of guys with just a handful of wins or less. Nor does it enter into the other pissing match about whether someone like Hodnett is, or is not Posse, blah, blah, blah.

Top 12 states:
Indiana 839
Tennessee 370
North Dakota 249
Oklahoma 129
Ohio 126
Pennsylvania 125
California 108
South Dakota 107
Missouri 90
Minnesota 59
Connecticut 39

      As you can see, Pennsylvania is solidly in the top 6. A more interesting data point (at least based op the top 21) is that North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Minnesota and Connecticut totals are for one driver!

     Anyway, it's the internet and folks will need to point out where everything I've written is wrong.

Note to self, read the post you are responding to and understand what it says before you post.  Got it.  Thanx, disregard everything that follows.  Smile

 

Seems like the SD total would have to include at least Zomer and Wolfgang, no?  Also, wouldn't the ND total have to include at least two drivers, Schatz and Dobmeier?


Thanx,
Bruce

    You're correct, but like I said. I only went through the top 21. Then again, I'm not sure if Dobmeier lives in Grand Forks North Dakota, or East Grand Forks Minnesota, so that might mess up the Minnesota count as well.

      If you tallied up all the states represented (and at least one foreign country) you'd see more listed in Pennsylvania, Ohio, California and several other states. Maybe EZ2BEME or somebody could do that tally. Maybe he already has. I don't know. Imagine how many * would be required. Did a Canadian ever win a WoO feature?

    In the end, we're all sprint car fans. It doesn't make a lick of sense to break it down to teams of us verses them. We should be glad that we have a common interest.

"My team rocks, so your team must suck!". Whatever. The only problem I have with Pennsylvania sprint cars is that their season starts like, end of February, 1st part of March(?) Ours in South Dakota starts about never.
