(Loudon, NH) -- This week's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway will feature one driver with a little more experience than others. Morgan Shepherd is scheduled to become the oldest driver to start a race in NASCAR's premier series at the age of 71. The entry list has 43 cars for 43 spots, so barring a late entry or substitution, Shepherd would break the record held by Jim Fitzgerald, who took part in a race when he was 65 years old.
