Monday marks the one-year anniversary of the loss of Dan Gurney, the iconic race driver, team owner and constructor who died at age 86.

From sports cars to Formula 1 in 23 races, the only man to ever build and drive his own F1 car to victory and a versatile star who won in Indy cars, Can-Am, NASCAR, F1 and sports cars, Dan Gurney’s legacy extended beyond his accomplishments behind the wheel.

In 2016, Robin Miller talked about what made The Big Eagle so special as part of his “Bench Racer” series.
