Kinda old news now, but Jeff Gordon is going to climb out of the full time NASCAR gig after 2015. Wonder if this will be a new trend? Seems like "back in the day" guys would drive deep into their 50's. Jeff is 43, and still very on top of his game. Mark Martin retired, came back, and got yet another "Runner Up" title - proving the old guys can still Git R Done with the right team. Will we soon see Stewart, Kenseth, and Biffle hang it up on the full schedule madness as Jeff Burton has done? All of these guys are over 40, have been in the series a while, and except for Biffle don't really have much left to prove. On one hand, it'll be sad not to have Gordon on the track to root against in 2016 (I'll still have Jimmy to boo though!), but on the other it'll be fun to see if Chase Elliott can match/exceed the success his old man had. With Larson and Dillon already in the mix, there should be some good rivalries forming in the "younger" ranks. Now, if NASCAR can just get it together, they have the people and talent in place to be an exciting, fun series to watch. They just need to get out of their own way and let 'em race!
