Jan Gabriel - Mr. Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!
Jan was the legendary motor sports announcer known for his signature phrase "Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!" used to promote the US 30 Drag Strip events in Northwest Indiana. He created, produced and hosted the nationally syndicated TV show "The Super Chargers" which ran from 1982 to 1994. Jan called the action at Santa Fe Speedway in Hinsdale/Willow Springs, Illinois from 1968 to 1982. He established and was president of his production company, TV One Inc. He founded the "Team Demolition Association" in 1999 and was running demo events in Joliet at Route 66 Raceway til the time of his passing. That is just part of Jans active career. There is more about Jan on one of my earlier posts.
