For this Presidents day we remember a great man who never became (or actually ran for) president, Dan Gurney. You may have seen some of these “Dan Gurney for President” stickers on various classic cars, or even on the bar at The Seneca Lodge
Dan Gurney died a bit over a year ago at 86 years old. Motorsport.com’s obituary is a touching outline of his achievements. Dan Gurney was as great an engineer as he was a driver and is certainly one of the most influential men in American motorsports. RIP Mr Gurney, you would have had my vote.
