Wow, sad...!!! I spent quite a bit of time over my years directly or indirectly involved in several Gurney programs. Gurney has always been a tremendous gentleman with one ambition, "Winning in every aspect of his life" which he accomplished.
I still have my Dan Gurney BMX bike that I got for my 7th birthday. I'm 48 now. Growing up in Riverside and spending many days at Riverside Raceway, Dan Gurney was always an influential icon. RIP Dan Gurney and thanks for your innovation.
