Happy birthday to Dan Gurney - 81 years of age and still a driving force as a “game changer” in our sport.
Dan’s All American Racers organization built the Nissan DeltaWing which will debut at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. His son Alex was also the first man to drive the car at the inital testing at Buttonwillow Raceway in California.
Dan is pictured above giving Nissan DeltaWing racer Marino Franchitti and Highcroft Racing’s Duncan Dayton some tips on spraying champagne……and he should certainly know how. Dan kicked off the podium champagne spraying tradition in 1967 when he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with AJ Foyt.
Have a great day Dan.
