2024 Writers’ Roundtable, Vol. 1: Best de Ferran Memory?

Today’s question: What is your fondest memory of two-time INDYCAR SERIES champion and 2003 Indianapolis 500 winner Gil de Ferran, who died Dec. 29 at age 56?. Mostly, it was his pride in the home that was on full display. Eric Smith: There are so many memories of Gil de Ferran that could easily fill a book. I know cliches are at times worn out, but one in sports that comes to my mind is fitting for the person de Ferran was. For de Ferran’s INDYCAR SERIES career, his last race inside of the cockpit was a win, on Oct. 12, 2003, at Texas Motor Speedway. De Ferran did just that, leaving the 2003 season as an Indianapolis 500 winner and took a trip to victory lane in his 160th and final start.
