The Nationals, as the event was first known, were first held in Great Bend in 1955. The race is now held in Indianapolis and is known as the U.S. Nationals.

What year did the U.S. Nationals move to Indy and what other cities besides Great Bend and Indianapolis have hosted the Nationals (hint - there were 3)?

Not "a" Nationals event but "The" Nationals which later became The U.S. Nationals.

I read back through the posts and maybe I need to be more clear.

eloc431962 asked, "In what year was the first nation wide NHRA sponsered event and where was it held at."

To which I answered, "1955 Great Bend, KS," which was the correct answer.

Building on that question, I asked a multiple answer question about that first nation wide event. That event was known as "The Nationals." When NHRA added a second annual event, The Nationals became known as the U. S. Nationals, which are now held in Indianapolis. This year will be the 55th annual U. S. Nationals.

My trivia question is, "What year did the Nationals/U. S. Nationals move to Indianapolis and in what three other cities besides Great Bend and Indianapolis were the Nationals / U. S. Nationals held?"

While all three of the cities have drag strips today (maybe in a bedroom community nearby), none have NHRA national events held in them.

Trivia

OK - here's a "puffball" for you
All the '57 Chevs sold in Australia (and, I presume, New Zealand) were built in Canada for export. Besides being right-hand drive, what was the main distinguishing feature that sets them apart from all other '57 Chevs anywhere?

(and, bonus - they were all one model - what was it?)

(I'm guessing there will be a few members on here from Oz who will answer in about 2 seconds, thus giving some members other than us "regulars" a chance to play...)

I'll take a stab at it...

All new '57 Chevrolets imported into Australia were 4-door sedans. One unique feature was that they were all 6 cylinder engines and manual transmissions.

Well first off, they all had the one piece front bumpers and frame rails. Just as the "California" cars did.
