My Famous Cousin (a little off-topic)

My cousin, Dan S. Gurney, celebrates his 82nd birthday today.

He was named after his uncle (my grandfather), Dan Gurney. Dan had quite a career in auto racing. He's the only American to build and drive his own Formula I car to a European Grand Prix win. He also made his mark at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at the Indy 500 races.

Here's a little YouTube clip about his Indy 500 career:

Happy birthday, Dan!
