Dan Gurney made history for a lot of reasons. He was a talented driver as well as a skilled constructor. Both came into play in 1967, when he won the Belgian Grand Prix in one of his own cars—a record that is unlikely to ever be broken. He also famously invented the champagne victory spray-down that's now commonplace. Less famous is the fact that he was the first F1 driver to wear a full-face helmet, which is what inspired Bell Helmets to interview him for a six-part series of videos in partnership with Racer.com.
You can watch the first two episodes, in which Gurney discusses how All American Racers was formed, and the first Eagle cars, below. Check back at for more episodes.
