The SPEEDVEGAS instructor who died in a fiery crash was laid to rest Wednesday at King David Cemetery.

59-year-old Gil Ben Kely was a two-time cancer survivor and a lifelong race car driver. His family has invited the public to attend his funeral and celebrate his life.

SPEEDVEGAS has closed their doors since the crash took place on Sunday. It's not clear when they'll open again.

The company requires every driver to sign a release form that includes an assumption of risk clause. Specifically, the paperwork stated that personal safety cannot be guaranteed and that the client agreed not sue so for any injuries or deaths.

Officials have not released the identity of the driver who crashed the Lamborghini.
