The Graying of NASCAR's Green

I’m not one to think or worry much about age. But I started thinking a bit about age when I read the following tweet from CNBC’s Emmy-winning sports business reporter, Darren Rovell, the man behind the Sports Biz blog: @darrenrovell: Nielsen: Median age of viewer -- NBA (39.3), NHL (43.4), NFL (46), MLB (51.4), NASCAR (51.6).
