Doesn't meet WP:GNG or WP:NMOTORSPORT; sourcing appears to all be WP:ROUTINE at best; nothing approaching significant. Wikipedia is not a database - "Ghost of Dan Gurney" (c/t) 01:18, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Delete No coverage where they talk about this person found; some sourcing for his father it looks like. Sources are mostly confirmation of the races he did, so are simple statistics like time it took him to finish the race. Long way from GNG. Oaktree b (talk) 15:56, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Comment - I was content to let the discussion run its course, but with a second relist, I think it's fair to ask Frank Anchor which sources he was referring to earlier. - "Ghost of Dan Gurney" (work / talk) 20:47, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Refs 4 and 5 (which is the same article picked up by multiple outlets so counts as one) offer significant biographical information, ref 7 indicates that he will start for another driver (far from a routine event in NASCAR) in addition to some routine coverage allowing it to go past the GNG threshold.

  • Keep He's run in the NASCAR Trucks series—if that's not good enough for notability, then why are we even here? Andy Saunders (talk) 00:45, 8 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Please see WP:NMOTORSPORT; these guidelines were updated recently and the language is such that a full season in Cup is usually what is looked for now. Regardless, they are subordinate to the WP:GNG. - "Ghost of Dan Gurney" (work / talk) 02:58, 8 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete. Clear fail of WP:GNG (most of the sources are primary and are from NASCAR's official website). The coverage currently is WP:ROUTINE at best. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 02:23, 9 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • ROUTINE is a subsection of the notability guideline for events. A person is not an event, and so ROUTINE does not apply here. BeanieFan11 (talk) 19:49, 10 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
