Answer:  TRACK-AND-FIELD EVENT

(One of the longest answers I can ever remember!  Funny/different kind of pun.  There is a new clue word in this puzzle, in “eureka”!  All the jumbling was very good too.  The answer letter layout was remarkable.  I’m sure that more than a few of you had some difficulty in solving this one.  The cartoon and the driver’s comments set up the gag very nicely.  Sorry about the delay, folks.  It was a busy long weekend.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I got it, I got it!!!! OMWord….three clue letters in each word. A hyphenated answer. Just really happy there were no dreaded ” “s. Grand puzzler. Actually got the clue words pretty quickly. And thought I’d get all gummed up on the answer. I figured “event” for the last word and “and” for the middle of the hyphenated word…the rest kinda fell into place. YEA!
