...Time for Tangent #82... As good as the young drivers are, we continue to find it intriguing that Champions, by and large, are much older than 25. Need proof? The average age of a World of Outlaws driving champion is 32-33 years old. Since the inception of WoO, the youngest champion driver was Steve Kinser in the inaugural 1978 season. Kinser was 23 when we won his first crown. In 2000, "King" Steve was 45 years old when he captured the title. This year's titlest, Danny Lasoski was 42 when he took the champion's check.

Is it limited to WoO? No.

Kenny Jacobs was the All-Star Champ again, at age 46. Terry McCarl, the Knoxville track champ was 36 last season. The Golden State series gave Brent Kaeding his 11th championship trophy at age 43. NCRA's Gary Wright is 42 years old. SCRA's Cory Kruseman set a record for feature wins on his way to non-wing glory at age 30. Regionally, Floyd Alvis won the BCRA deal at age 67! Keith Kauffman was the Port Royal 410 Sprint Champ at age 51. Roger Rager, and Dan Boorse are still getting it done as well.

Who bucked the trend at the National level? J.J. Yeley didn't turn 25 until late in his championship 2001 USAC sprint car season. Even younger, 23 year-old, Daryn Pittman took the WoO Gumout Series.
