Dan Gurney Eagle Racer

This article chronicles the career of versatile Dan Gurney, one of the greatest race drivers the United States ever produced. A true force in Formula One's golden years, Gurney did something no other driver had ever done and likely never will do again - win a grand prix in an American-built car he designed. This was the Belgium GP in 1967. But there was much more to Dan Gurney. Like his contemporaries Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt, Gurney won races in IndyCar, NASCAR and sports cars. He won at Le Mans, in Can-Am and in NASCAR at his favorite track, Riverside, California. This article originally appeared in the 2007 USGP program.
