Shane Hmiel is a former NASCAR driver that was paralyzed from the waist down after a near fatal accident in 2010. Shane has an impressive, and sometimes controversial career in NASCAR. He won the 2001 Rookie of the Year in the Goodys Dash Series and competed in the NASCAR (then) Busch Series. Shane also had struggles with addiction, being suspended from racing in 2003 for a short time after failing multiple drug tests. In October 2010 Shane crashed into the wall at a qualifying race in which the roll cage in the car crumbled. He has since recovered but will require the use of a wheelchair for the rest of his life. GameTimes Rachel Baribeau talked to Shane about his website that equips stock cars for handicapped drivers.
