Daniel Sexton "Dan" Gurney (born 13 April 1931 in Port Jefferson, New York - died 14 January 2018 in Newport Beach, California) was an American racing driver, race car constructor, and team owner who reached racing's highest levels starting in 1958.

Gurney made his non-championship Formula One debut for Rob Walker Racing in that year's Glover Trophy, qualifying in 4th place ahead of drivers such as Troy Ruttman, Graham Hill or Consalvo Sanesi. Gurney however retired after a handful of laps with an oil leak failure.

Gurney took part in a handful of races for Rob Walker that year as well as taking part in the British Grand Prix driving for JB Naylor. While Gurney showed some good driving behind the wheel, bad luck always got him as he retired from the first two races he competed in.

After his retirement from racing, Gurney concentrated full-time on his own team, All American Racers, along with its Eagle cars.
