Raised in a racing dynasty, Gary Savage is no stranger to the roar of the engines – especially sports cars. In 2010, Savage will race with the number 42, the long-standing number used by the Savage family. Savage will be navigating George Winkler Racing’s Ford Mustang FR500S.
Savage’s first professional race on the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course is an especially poignant moment as it is sacred territory in his family because David “Swede” Savage challenged this permanent road course as a top-tier fixture in Trans Am and Can Am.
