Block was known for helping found DC Shoes, being a rally-car driver, cultivating the Hoonigan automotive-enthusiast lifestyle and merchandise brand, and starting up the series of Gymkhana stunt videos.

"It’s with our deepest regrets that we can confirm that Ken Block passed away in a snowmobile accident today," the Hoonigan brand said in a statement posted on its Instagram page. "Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband. He will be incredibly missed. Please respect the family’s privacy at this time while they grieve."

Block's hobbies in the winter included snowboarding and snowmobiling.

He is survived by his wife, Lucy, and three children. This is a developing story and we will follow up as we learn more, either via updates to this post or with follow-up stories.

RIP, Ken Block.

R.I.P. to an absolute legend in the car community. I never met him but he seemed like such a good guy on and off the track.

The Hoonicorn is one of the all time builds and I'm thankful for him sharing it with all of us.

Hoonigan shared a tribute video for the Ken and it definitely got me emotional again.
