“Woke up in disbelief this morning,” John Holtger Racing said in a Facebook post. “CPod has been one of my biggest competitors but also a friend. He was one heck of a wheel man out there and was willing to give you tips and tricks to be better (like putting duct tape over your tear offers so water doesn’t get in). Fly high buddy. You will be missed by many. I will never forget the times we had.”
