Don Panoz.  Did so much for sportscar racing from car design to tracks to governing bodies and everything else to drag it forward.  Still love his GT1 cars.

Thanks for the info.  Missed that he passed.  A fun guy, met him many times during my racing days.

A very nice guy and super smart. Invented the trans-dermal patch, most widely used as the nicotine patch and owned Chateau Elan in Georgia. He was a real wine guy. But I'll always like him the most for creating the American LeMans Series and dragging my home track Mosport out of the 60's and into the present.
