a contest! a contest!

This week feels like the last week of school. In just a few days I’ll leave for Indianapolis and all of the Indy 500 festivities thereof. In the hopes of spreading the excitement I’ve decided to hold a little contest.

The details
The person who correctly answers the most questions wins.
In the event of a tie, a winner will be chosen at random from the particpants who correctly answered the most questions.

The prize will include a dandy item from the official Gift Shop of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and some knitter’s delight from an Indy area yarn store. (If winner is not a knitter another pleasing prize will be substituted).

The Deadline
Answers must be emailed here no later than Wednesday, May 23th, 9:00 p.m. (CST).

The Rest
Please DO NOT leave your answers in comments.
Yes, you can use the internet.

THE QUESTIONS
1) This year’s event will mark how many runnings of the Indy 500?
2) For the first time three women have qualified for the Indy 500. Name all three.
3) How many drivers in the 2007 Indy 500 were born in the 1980’s?
4) Who is this year's pole sitter?
5) Name the father-son duo that will compete in this year’s race.
6) Name the person who gives the command to “…START YOUR ENGINES!!”
7) How many American born drivers will compete in this year’s race?
8) Who drives the #8 car?

Is it cheating if I just e-mail our mutual friend John and get the answers from him? He was one of my favorites at the old job, and I'll definitely miss him.

Oh! You're *that* Emily. Hello Emily!!! Being that John helped in the writing of the questions it might be considering cheating. Yeah.
