Ron Keegan, Fremont, Ohio
Brothers Don and Ron Keegan join their father, Mervin, in the Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame. The Keegan brothers have been involved in racing practically since they were born, growing up working on the cars owned by their father. Don and Ron got their first Fremont Speedway track championship in the late model division in 1974 with Wally Heminger behind the wheel. In the seven years Heminger drove the Keegan brothers’ cars they won 70 features in four states. Other hall of fame drivers to sit behind the wheel of the Don and Ron Keegan machines were Dale Hasselbach, Jim Fleming, Lee Potter and LJ Connors. The Don and Ron have owned sprint cars which were driven by Don’s son Dustin, late models and dirt trucks. Dustin won the Fremont Speedway 2017 dirt truck championship in a Keegan machine. This year marks the 44th year Don and Ron Keegan have had race cars compete at Fremont Speedway.
