Sports Car Driver Memo Gidley Returns to Halifax Health to Say Thanks

(January 27, 2017) – Today, sports car driver Memo Gidley returned to Halifax Health Medical Center of Daytona Beach to thank his orthopedic care team of physicians and nurses.  In 2014, Gidley was seriously injured in a crash during the third hour of the Rolex 24 At Daytona.  He has endured a long road to recovery and anticipates returning to racing later this year.
