Drag racing lost another legend last week with the passing of Brian Keegan.

Keegan – honoured with an inuagural ANFA Pioneer Award in 2011 – is best known for his street driven FX Holden that he fabricated almost everything on himself.

He was the first to run a 13 second pass using a six cylinder with the FX and later was the first to run a 12 second pass in his six cylinder competition Holden. He also had run a superchared Y Block Ford powered dragster at Castlereagh in 1960, later ran a 179 Holden powered rail as well.
