      Nice, I was just listening to the Dinner With Racers episode with him the other day and wondered what came of the pursuit. Wish him the best, a true OG badass.

          No, that's not the question.

              I hope that keeps him going for another 50 years or so. Most 87 year olds would probably break a hip just getting strapped in.
