Is 72 too old to be a Nascar driver?

Morgan Shepherd's senior status has become an age-old problem in NASCAR. Just how much longer can the 72-year-old driver race? Considerably older and slower than any driver on the track, the 72-year-old Shepherd took out contender Joey Logano in the second half of Sunday's race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Shepherd's No. 33 Chevrolet was about 15 laps off the pace when he connected with Logano. Logano was running second with less than 100 laps left when he got tangled up with Shepherd and they crashed. Logano was forced to the garage.  Shepherd completed 278 of the 305 laps and was 39th.
