Met Sam for the first time during the Indycar test sessions February, 2016, at Phoenix International Raceway.
I was there due to life-long ties to motorsports and was immediately impressed with Sam and his team.
From that initial encounter I created two originals for Sam:
No. 7 RW&B
Watching Sam work with his race teams is inspiring, humbling. While I’m sure there are moments his condition gets to him, he clearly doesn’t permit it to define him, much less his achievements.
If ever you have opportunity to meet Sam, introduce your self, the encounter will inspire you for a lifetime.
Sam Schmidt – no excuses – a champion by all measures.
