He is known for his competitive spirit and engagement with fans through his podcast, “Stacking Pennies.” He balances his racing career with philanthropy, emphasizing his passion for both motorsports and community involvement.
Corey shares how his grandfather and father were both successful racers, which naturally led him to be involved in the sport from a young age.
