Sad news today is that well-known local slot racer David Rodgers of Marietta, GA, passed away yesterday, the day after his 69th birthday. David was a regular competitor at Cordle Model Speedway and its succesor, Atlanta Slot Car Raceway, in Marietta. He joined Slotblog in June of 2017.

 

He will be missed. Condolences to all his many friends and his family.

RIP, David.
 
I raced with David for several years but did not know him well. He was always helpful and supportive of the hobby and the raceway. And a pretty good racer when he set his mind to it. 
 
Yes, he will be missed.

RIP, David.

Obsessed is the word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

David's date of birth was different on Slotblog and Facebook, and his date of death differs as well.

 

If anyone knows the correct dates, please let us know here so the Sloblog info is accurate.

 

Also, if an obituary for David is published, please let us know.

David was an excellent racer, fair across the board.
 
He will be missed.
