Who says you have to be young to appreciate a good go-kart race?
Certainly not Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who turns 80 on Thursday.
Instead of a traditional day out, Arpaio chose to mark his birthday — coincidentally the same day he celebrates 20 years as sheriff — with a day at Octane Raceway, an indoor cart racing facility in Phoenix.
“I like to say that 80 is the new 60,” Arpaio said in a press release. “You’re only as old as you feel and I feel great.”
