First Paralyzed Formula Race Car Driver's "Road to Indy" Sponsored By Coloplast
Date:5/15/2012

vely. His experience using his hands to apply throttle, brake and clutch in motorcycle racing paid off in the years following his paralyzing accident. He racked up numerous wins in go-kart competitions, driving specially-designed vehicles with hand controls instead of foot pedals.

Johnson's adult stem cell surgery in 2009, followed by aggressive physical therapy, stimulated some sensation, and gave Johnson the confidence to race formula cars professionally on tracks throughout the U.S. this year.

"My goal is to become the first paralyzed driver to win the Indy500," Johnson said. "My journey may seem unconventional, but we all have different paths to reach our potential and live life to the fullest. I might have some challenges here or there but I'm never going to give up. Racing is my life."
