Ben Keaton Memorial

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Ben Keaton Memorial

It always amazes me how much this situation gets to me. It's so emotional to see how much this one man has reached out to fellow car enthusiasts, and been a part of our interest group.
You read about deaths everyday in the newspaper, but this is the only one that I've ever actually paid attention to, learned more about, and truly felt sorry for.

So...Here's to Ben Keaton, owner of the Porsche Carrera GT, who died on June 2nd, doing what he loved, 100mph on the straight of California Speedway.

The next time you've got the pedal to the metal, think of him.
