To date, he's given away more than $240 million. And his Hole in the Wall camps give recreational and therapeutic camping experiences to children facing life-threatening diseases. There are now 15 camps around the world. But what really keeps Newman young is his passion for racing. And, he says, he has no plans to leave the track anytime soon.
Newman's not concerned about getting older and he gives all the credit to the longevity to his genes.
"My mother on her deathbed said, 'Paul, you have to excuse me, I've been lying all these years, I'm not 83, I'm 87.' And when we took her back to Cleveland, to be buried next to my father, her sister was there."
"And I said, 'you know, mother said that she had been lying all these years, and that she wasn't 83, that she was 87.' And her sister said, 'Baloney, she was 93,' " Newman said.
Apparently, Newman still has a long way to go.
