So sad to hear about the loss of an absolute legend @kblock43. Nothing that man couldn’t do! The things he did behind the wheel of a car looked as if they were fake and out of a video game. The Best!!!! 🙏— Clint Bowyer (@ClintBowyer) January 3, 2023

Such a talent that did so much for our sport. He was a true visionary with his own unique style & infectious smile.
Our sport lost one of the best today but more importantly a great man.
