Description: This video shows what is "Only the Beginning" of racing, riding, jumping, and stunting for a quadriplegic named John Mryczko II and his newly adapted UTV. John was injured in a motorcycle accident 15 years ago at the age of 19 and sustained a C5 spinal cord injury. He did not let his injury change his personality or change the things that he was passionate and interested in. Action, Adventure, & Motor Sports of all kinds are just one of his interests, but it is the one that makes him most feel like himself, and feel alive. With help from his friends and family, and even a few strangers that became great acquaintances John was able to develop and convert his third AATV (Adaptive All Terrain Vehicle). He has been adapting smaller size buggies and UTV's since 2007. His dream was always too get a large-size UTV and turn it into a Pro Racing Buggy & UTV like he had seen on TV. In 2013 he purchased a slightly used 2009 Polaris RZR-S that already had many racing modifications done to it. The next thing that needed to be done was to convert the RZR so that he was able to drive it even with his limited strength and mobility. Just like the last two he would convert this one the same and make it completely accessible and be driven by joystick control. It took many man hours to get the project finished and then get the bugs worked out, but John was finally able to drive his new vehicle in spring of 2014. He has had over 24 hours of seat time driving the new RZR in various locations all around the north Midwest. John, Jasiu, or J2 as he is also known by plans to race in different series and events all over the country starting in spring of 2015. J2 also has a few stunts planned for the upcoming 2015 year. It does not stop there, he also helps run a nonprofit organization called Super Chairing. John has so many goals, dreams, and plans not only for himself but to help others with high-level injuries, Limited mobility, or different types of disabilities. With a little help from others, We can make them all happen. More Information on John Mryczko II at... www.J2RollsOn.com www.SuperChairing.org
