Michigan’s own Jack Roush – the coolest 75 year-old out there

Jack Roush is 75 years old now and after 60 years of racing, he says he might slow down a little bit, but he’s not retiring. His version of “slowing down” may not be yours, because at 75, Jack Roush is living the dream. And when I say “living the dream” – I’m serious – IMO – he’s got it nailed.

Jack knows I’m a big fan. He and I have had several conversations about that P-51 of his. And the people I’ve talked to who have worked for him, have nothing but great things to say about the guy.

I know this vignette from Jeff Burton and NBC Sports is from a couple of years ago, but as we head into race weekend at M.I.S., it deserves another look.

What’s a day in the life of Jack Roush like? Check it out:
