FONTANA, Calif. - Two men were killed when their car crashed and caught fire at the California Speedway, authorities said.

Benjamin Miles Keaton, 39, and his passenger, Corey Nicholas Rudl, 34, both of La Jolla, died Thursday when Keaton's 2005 Porsche Carrera GT left the track and slammed into a barrier. The engine compartment then caught fire, according to a sheriff's report.

Rudl was pronounced dead at the scene. Keaton was airlifted to Loma Linda University Hospital, where he died about an hour later, according to the San Bernardino County Coroner's Office.

The accident occurred while the track was being rented by the San Diego chapter of the Ferrari Owners Club. The men are the fourth and fifth fatalities at California Speedway since it opened in 1997.
