MORRISON, Colo. – Who wouldn’t want to get behind the wheel of a brand new Corvette Stingray?
There’s a race car in Colorado that is like no other in the world. It’s the project of a Colorado company, Arrow Electronics that has the potential to change lives.
The man tasked with testing it out knows a thing or two about driving race cars.
“Literally, since I was five years old, I wanted to compete at Indianapolis Speedway” says Sam Schmidt.
His dream to become an Indy driver came true in 1997.
“I raced there for three years, really had a lot of success there but then I crashed and that’s it.”
That crash 15 years ago, made Schmidt a quadriplegic and put him in a wheelchair. He wrote off driving.
