The Curmudgeon Writes About…NASCAR?

No, not really.

But last weekend, a young man named Cole Custer won a NASCAR race in New Hampshire.

What makes this noteworthy is that Mr. Custer is sixteen years old.

He’s from California, where you can’t even get a full driver’s license until you’re 18.

And in New Hampshire, where he was racing, the most you can get at that age is a youth operator’s license.

So The Curmudgeon would like to know how someone that young learned how to drive well enough to win a NASCAR race.

And what kind of person puts a vehicle worth tens of thousands of dollars into the hands of a young man who could still be sleeping on Harry Potter sheets.

And wouldn’t it have been funny if, as he was zooming around the track, a police officer had driven onto the track and pulled him over and demanded to see proof that he was old enough to drive.
