it is sometimes like we still judge cars together because various things I see cause a mental replay of the words he would say. RIP

Kenny was the ultimate New York character. We traveled by plane or car to about 8 or so conventions together. Ride 13 hours in a car with Kenny riding shot gun and your head was swimming when you arrived. We talked about everything and anything, Kenny always had a opinion in a slow drawn out way. His son was the highlight of his life. Many remember his color of choice Black, hat shirt pants big black hiking boots along with the sun glasses. I asked him about it, his response "Dude there is no other color" He always gave me his judges hat why wasn't black But his most endearing quality.... The man could snore louder than any Human being on earth, really. Each night after working the track he would fall asleep fully clothed holding the TV remote with a death grip ESPN baring on the set. I had to buy the best ear plugs they make to even try for sleep
But to this day at conventions I still bring the plugs and put them on the bed stand just in case he shows up
Kenny was a true friend
