Well Dawson did not finish the very first Indy 500 and won the second so how come he's not the one ? :D

He was the first one but maybe not the last one.
Maybe someone like Rick Mears or similar who won a bunch of times.

BINGO

Prior to J. Villeneuve winning on his second attempt in 1995, Rick Mears won on his second attempt in 1979.

He's from Detroit and the cool thing to smoke there is Lucky Strike

About the quiz: I remember that because that year my daddy died and the former Group C also apparently did ... at Le Mans the old Mercedes C11 was fastest but the first spots on the grid were reserved for Bernie's pet project, the 3.5 F1 engined crapwagons

An easy one when you have google ...

Who raced with his pet monkey in the cockpit? (At least until it almost cost him a fatal accident)

The monkey was named Jocko Flocko IIRC, and it was one of the Flock brothers who did the trick in a few NASCAR races. Fonty ?

Close enough, it was the other brother, Tim.

Jocko has the distinction of being (technically speaking) the only monkey to have ever won a Nascar race, as he was in the car

...and these crapwagons, going after the featureless name of "Peugeot", broke down after few hours in quick succession :jp:
