Dysfunctional Racing

Dysfunctional Racing was formed in 2004 after I had a horrible crash on a Honda crf50, which left me paralyzed. After my accident I was looking for a way to get back out there racing, when I met Danny Barnett another person in a wheelchair who also crashed on a motorcycle and was left paralyzed. His injury was much lower and happened several years before mine. Danny ended up being my occupational therapist, while I was at the first hospital, we started talking and I found out that he raced a off-road buggy that you controlled with you hands(gas and brakes).  My only problem was he had finger movement and I don't.

I'm a c4-5 quadriplegic; I don't have feeling or movement below the nipple line. I have limited triceps muscle, and I don't have use of my fingers.

The goal of our team is to provide awareness to encourage the principles of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and sportsmanship.

We appreciate the generous support of the sponsors that help out.

Thank You,
Dysfunctional Racing



Looks like after a 2 year break it's time to work on new plans for 2014. Steve Wheel's and myself will be going racing in the Lucas Oil regional off road series in the mini open class. I will be racing a Ford Ranger, while Steve will be contesting a Chevy Blazer.
