Morgan Shepherd hopes he hasn’t written the last chapter to his NASCAR Sprint Cup resurrection story.
The 71-year-old did in fact start last weekend’s Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and ran 92 laps. That made him the oldest Cup starter in series history.
According to the Associated Press, he’s working on possible sponsorship for the race at Pocono Raceway in August, and will then work towards a qualifying attempt in next year’s Daytona 500.
Shepherd last made the field for the Daytona 500 in 1997, and his most recent attempt to qualify there was in 2006.
