Ken Block

Pro Rally car driver, Youtuber, and founder of Hoonigan Ken Block dies at 55

The announcement has come from the Hoonigans Instagram feed that Ken Block, 55, has died as a result of a snowmobiling accident today.

Block had a longtime partnership with Ford Performance before moving to Audi in 2021.

Block started his rallying career in 2005 and won the Rally America Championship's Rookie of the Year award.

Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband.

He was not just a racer or a TV figure; he changed automotive culture.

Ken Block lived life unbound. He merged skateboarding with rally cars with lowriders.

Block is survived by his wife, Lucy Block, and their three children.
