I think its more mental than physical for Nascar driviers.
Not very many drivers are competitive in their 50's. Mark Martin works his ass off, literally, to be in shape to compete at a high level. Jeff Burton is with a good team, when was his last win? See the difference? You can say Dale Earnhardt was competitve at 50. He was not a gym rat but was always working on his farm and hunting. Just like going to the gym, only he accomplished something. I guess if you consider driving around to help a sponsor competitve....not so much athleticism. Try sitting in your sauna for 5 hours straight, then immediately drive to the grocery store and get back to us on how it went.

And yes, congrats to the best badboy in the mix on another win.

I wonder how Pastrana feels about not beating the Girl racer last weekend?

He has more talent in his little toe than Princess Danica has in her entire body so I'm sure he will be whupping her very soon. Great result for her though eh
