A star in the Super Late Model races, driver David Rogers passed away on March 8th, 2020 after a series of complications in his battle with lymphatic cancer.

At just 64 years old, the loss of someone who has been a part of the sport for decades is a true tragedy for all who knew him and for all of those who had yet to meet him. He inspired many and was beloved by all.

Rogers had been battling lymphatic cancer for over a year and was recently struggling through some complications with the disease. On February 26th, 2020, he had a blood test that brought back some concerning results to doctors, so they re-admitted him to the hospital on Saturday night, March 7th, 2020.

Rogers’ legacy in NASCAR came from his time in Super Late Model races like the Snowball Derby and his 1994 championship win in the NASCAR Weekly Series. In that series, he won all 22 races which made him the first to compete undefeated.

Taking to Twitter and sharing a tribute to the late driver, automotive journalist Matt Weaver posted a photo and spoke highly of Rogers.

May he rest in peace.
