THE EAGLES HAVE LANDED: DAN GURNEY’S ALL AMERICAN RACERS

IN THE CHARLES NEARBURG FAMILY GALLERY PRESENTED BY

This exhibit illustrates the diversity of race cars built by Gurney’s AAR team – from the first Eagle Indy car of 1966 to the final CART Champ car built in 1999- with a total of 11 vehicles on display. Significant technological advancements and racing milestones will be highlighted. The extent of AAR’s success—78 race victories in a wide range of race formats—will be explained with a special emphasis on Gurney’s own victory at Spa in 1967, which made him the first and only American in Grand Prix racing to win in a car of his own construction.

The Eagles Have Landed exhibit will also give texture to the AAR story with an array of important non-vehicle artifacts, including the first full-face helmet worn in motorsport competition – made by Bell near Los Angeles and worn by Dan Gurney – and the original magnum of Moët champagne that Gurney sprayed after his victory in Le Mans, unwittingly establishing an enduring tradition.

Open January 28 2017 – January, 10 2018
