Welcome the IndyCar Seniors Tour

This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit.

We normally think of motor racing as a young man’s game. But that wasn’t the case at last night’s IndyCar race outside St. Louis.

Takuma Sato42-year-old Takuma Sato got the win. And that was good to hear after he was crucified on Social Media for his part in the first lap accident at Pocono Raceway last weekend.

Second last night was 38-year-old Ed Carpenter an oval track specialist. And third was Tony Kanaan, at 44 the oldest on the podium.

That put the average age of the top three finishes at just more than 41 years. Rare in modern racing.

It brought a smile when 21-year-old IndyCar rookie Santino Ferrucci finished fourth at the Checkered Flag.

Josef Newgarden still leads the championship race by 38 over Penske teammate Simon Pagenaud with two races left in the season.

Gotta love the Senior’s Tour, though, right?

Peace.
