With Ken Block's passing on Monday, it felt only appropriate that this week's video of the week focus on him.

Obviously, Block had a YouTube channel, but I thought pulling a video from there or linking to it would be too easy. Instead, I found this touching tribute video from the Dirtfish Rally School.

Give it a look here and relive Block's career.

    I'd love to visit DirtFish and take a run around their course. They've been featured on a couple of episodes of Roadkill.

    I've seen tons of tributes to Ken Block this week, from everyone from Randy Pobst to Jonny Liberman, to Chris Jacobs, to Jay Leno. An amazing talent gone too soon.
