One of sports car racing‘s most decorated crew chiefs has announced his retirement as Dan Binks will step away from Corvette Racing and focus on life outside of IMSA‘s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. A fixture within an organization that takes pride in country and its bold, blaring race cars, Binks, a barrel-chested and proudly American man, embodied everything Corvette Racing represented at home and on the international stage.

“Thirty-eight years is a long time in motor racing,” he told RACER. “I love my Corvette Racing family, and now it‘s time to do something different.”

Binks came to prominence in the 1980s with fellow Californian Tommy Kendall as the two terrorized IMSA‘s GTU category with their low-dollar, high-talent Mazda RX-7 program. The Binks and Kendall connection would grow and move throughout North America as the SCCA Trans Am Series, IMSA GTP, and NASCAR beckoned.
