    Loved seeing his cars throughout the SouthEast, he will be missed. Met him about a year and a half ago when he ran out of fuel in his GT1 at turn 5 at Road Atlanta, real nice guy with a hearty wave when he was towed off.

    Dan made a number of appearances at Daytona in his C5 GT-1 Corvette, he was very professional and very quick. A great competitor.

    He will be missed!
