Happy Ken Block Day 4/3

Today was Ken Block Day. 4/3 in honor of the late great Block’s famous racing number. I can’t say I knew the man, but I had the opportunity to chat with Ken at the LA Auto show for a few minutes in 2012. He was chilling outside of a smoky Fiesta rally car on the Press & Industry day and spent a few minutes answering my questions about the car and talking shop. I suggested he should run some 24 Hrs of LeMons races and that infectious boyish charm that you see on the videos was there in the flesh. With the terrible news of his passing from a tragic accident in Jan of this year, my heart goes out to his family and he will be missed. Head over to the Hoonigan youtube channel for a 24 hr streaming 4/3 tribute to Ken Block and just be aware that people might cut some onions nearby.

The man was a legend and I wish the best success to his daughter Lia as she continues his legacy of shredding tires.
