Celebrated dirt track race car driver Josh Jackson has triumphed beyond greater hardships than most people will ever know.
After sustaining a near-fatal brain injury as the result of a mid-race accident, Josh found himself navigating a complex road to recovery. Intensive, real-world rehabilitation at Craig Hospital and QLI set the stage for lifelong growth, and a partnership with Council Bluffs-based go-karting facility Joe’s Karting laid the groundwork for a potential return to racing.
Now, only a few years after what could have been the end of his career – and his life – Josh is once again a familiar face in the winner’s circle, every bit as brave, as bold, as dominant, every bit as hopeful his talent translates into a future NASCAR career.
One of many stories covered in this spectacular look at a cherished American pastime, Josh’s segment begins just before the 25-minute mark.
