My cousin Dan Gurney was recently honored with the 2014 Edison-Ford Medal for Innovation. They produced this tribute film about his lifetime of achievement as a race car driver, engineer, builder, and team owner. (Link to video)
In accepting the award, he said, “This is truly an amazing, humbling award. It is a great legacy to be part of this award – the names Edison and Ford say it all. Because of them, so many things we do today are easy and possible. They were pioneers, they made the USA a great place.” Afterward, he was interviewed on stage by Charlie Rose.
