Just by looking at their names, you wouldn’t know they were related. 12 years separate Cody Bradbury and Corbin Leaverton. Cody is Corbin’s uncle. 31-year-old Cody Bradbury got bit by the racing bug early. In 2008 he was racing 1400 Class trucks in the Southern California deserts. Just a few years later, after his dad brought a Polaris RZR to the Glamis sand dunes, Cody decided to start side-by-side racing. He took 3rd at his first race and eventually won the championship. He was hooked. A year later, Corbin started racing too. Corbin was named rookie of the year in the WORCS series.
In the WORCS series they are “track-twins.” Both Cody and Corbin race identical 2020 Polaris RZR Pro-XP side-by-sides in the same class. Cody is a 2018 WORCS Champion and Corbin is the 2019 defending WORCS champion. “I am the old man, but we are super competitive. 1-2 (on the podium) would be an amazing weekend for us,” says Cody. While Cody didn’t specifically say, it’s obvious he would rather have the top podium spot over Corbin. That’s the way they roll.
Cody and Corbin have joined forces for the 2020 Best in The Desert Season. The two have yet to race together this year. They missed the first race of the year at Parker in January. Due to the current situation in the world, the Best in The Desert season has temporarily been postponed. They hope to get in the RZR together soon. Best in The Desert has announced plans to resume their schedule this summer.
In his downtime, Corbin says he has spent a lot of time driving racing simulators. Both Cody and Corbin say they like having the factory support of Polaris. The sport is growing, and both would like to make a living as professional racers.
