"The death of Adam is a real loss, to the Petty family first and foremost, but it's also a loss to the sport and to the Petty Enterprise business," said Sarah Gurtis, vice president of national partnerships of The Hole In The Wall Gang.
Gurtis had the opportunity-along with Tim Fedewa and many other Winston Cup drivers-to get to know Adam on a more intimate basis during that week.
"He was wonderful, kind, always smiling, and a really nice kid," Gurtis told us from her home in Daytona Beach, Fla. "He rode next to his father and grandfather and signed autographs for fans.It was just so special.And to think he is gone is hard to fathom.He will be greatly missed and always remembered first as a great human being and then as a great driver."

Daytona Usa Implements 2k Waterborne Polyurethane Floor Coating, 23 Jan 1998 [cached]
"We put the benefit of an odor-free coating to the test immediately," said Sarah Gurtis, general manager of DAYTONA USA."During the application of the topcoat just prior to the facility's grand opening, electricians and other contractors were working to meet their deadlines.The crews were able to work without disruption or discomfort in virtually the same area as the painters."
In addition to its odor-free and fast-drying benefits, the primer provides good adhesion and moisture resistance and was applied to a dry film thickness (DFT) of 5-6 mils.The polyurethane intermediate coat and topcoat offer excellent gloss retention, long-term color retention and high-wear resistance.The intermediate and topcoat were applied to a DFT of 2 mils.
