Watch Shane Hmiel drive a race car once again

   On Jan. 26 at Rockingham Speedway, former NASCAR driver Shane Hmiel took another amazing step on his road to recovery. More than two years after a crash that left him paralyzed and nearly dead, thanks to Accessible Racing and Racing4Vets, Hmiel got back behind the wheel of a race car again along with two retired Marine Corps veterans who lost their legs in IED explosions. 

   It was an amazing feat that his doctors said would never be possible. Watch his inspirational journey here to get back behind the wheel of a race car again.
