In ‘88 I was 13 and at an IMSA event at Summit Point. Gurney was running the Celica GTO cars. I was chasing all kinds of autographs - Scott Pruett was driving the winning Mac Tools Merkur that weekend.

I stood on the outside of Toyota’s paddock on Saturday and Gurney saw me and waved me over. He stopped his briefing and gave me a few moments signing my sheet of paper. Very cool experience that happened in a moment but has stayed with me all of these years.

At the Rolex they honored him by leading the pace car in his winning car from the first 24 hour race. That was a nice tribute that I only realized was happening until it was almost too late.
