Remembering Inductee Gil George

Remembering Inductee Gil George

The off-road world has lost another icon, ORMHOF partner, Funco Motorsports founder, and Hall of Fame Class of 2007 inductee, Gilmon 'Gil' George.

George founded Funco, the "Fun Company" in 1968. The company has grown to become the recognized leader in the Sand Car industry.

The George family, including Gil's sons and grandsons, will continue at Funco in the family tradition of building exceptional off-road vehicles innovated for fun.  A wonderful legacy indeed.
