Does Age Matter In Motorsports?

When Tony Stewart made his Top Alcohol drag racing debut last October, part of the reason he elected to hit the drag strip and not an oval was his age. Brown is the same age as NASCAR Cup Series driver Kevin Harvick, who plans to retire at the end of the season. “Drag racing just depends on what’s inside you,” Brown said. “I would definitely like to race until my early 30s at least.”. For instance, 37-year-old Kyle Busch, 42-year-old Denny Hamlin, 44-year-old Kurt Busch and Harvick (the oldest full-time driver in the NASCAR Cup Series) all collected wins last season. But for drivers like Keselowski or drag racers like Force, the allure of victory and the thrill of it all may just be what keeps them the most alive.
