Tracking the Short Tracks: Sauble Speedway Competitor Morgan Robson

Last year, Morgan Robson opened a new chapter in the history books when he began his rookie season at Sunset Speedway. Paralyzed from the waist down, Robson took to the track in a mustang that used hand controls. Robson learned as the season went on in how to control the car and get quicker.

This year, Robson will take on a new challenge as he will be racing at Sauble Speedway this summer. Though before taking to the track, he answered the 15 questions that surround racing on and off the track.
