Cory Podolski, commonly known as “CPod,” unexpectedly passed away in a terrible turn of circumstances, leaving the racing world in deep sorrow. On September 3, 2023, in Crandon, Cory, a former co-owner and vice president of Nine2zero Designs RC, died quietly in his sleep, leaving his loved ones, friends, and admirers in shock.
Cory Podolski, a native of Appleton, Wisconsin, a town perched above the Fox River and north of Lake Winnebago, was well-known for his prowess on the track and his amiable personality. He was adored in the tight-knit racing scene because of his outgoing nature; he was seen as a ray of happiness and optimism there.
Cory had a job at FASTSIGNS, a signage business specializing in custom signs and graphics products, in addition to his racing career. Beyond the racecourse, his love of design demonstrated his adaptability and originality.
Cory first made a name for himself in racing in 2001 when he competed in the Wisconsin Challenge Series and placed 65th. That year’s series champion was Mark Eswein. Cory participated in the ASA Late Model Series Challenge 2004 and earned a respectable 19th place. However, his performance dropped the following year, and he placed 78th in the same series.
Cory recently appeared on the registration list for the event at Crandon International Raceway on September 1-2. He planned to compete in the Pro Spec division, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to the sport.
