The man, the myth the legend, Roger Penske never fails to impress. For him being 80 years old is not a big deal and he proved it by staying up for the entire 24 hour Rolex 24 at Daytona.

In this race, drivers can take naps to make sure they are fully aware and able to drive, but Penske didn’t have time for that. According to foxsports.com/motor Penske said:

“The last thing I want to do is sit in a hotel room and watch the race and not be able to be here and see what’s happening. I had no issue all day, and all night, to be honest with you.”

Although his team didn’t win, Penske was exactly where he wanted to be.
