Herbst To Pay Tribute To Ken Block At Darlington

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — On a race weekend that honors motorsports legends, Riley Herbst and Monster Energy will pay tribute to the late Ken Block, whose skill as a rallycross driver and stuntman is known globally thanks to his Gymkhana series of YouTube videos that brought car culture to the mainstream. Furthering the connection, Herbst’s paint scheme was designed by Marcus Jurgensen, the originator of the scheme Block ran in 2010. “I was a big fan of Ken Block’s infamous Monster Energy ‘Drip’ livery growing up,” Herbst said. I’m so appreciative of the Block family for letting me run this tribute. I chose this paint scheme specifically because I was such a huge Ken Block fan growing up. Block’s legacy made an impact on all of motorsports and is a testament to chasing dreams. Block won 23 races across multiple rally car series, earned several medals in the X Games, and created an entire empire from his dreams. In 2008, Block began to post his Gymkhana video series to YouTube.
