Blind Man, Ronnie Presnell, Fulfills Car-Racing Dream On Charlotte Motor Speedway (VIDEO)


Though Ronnie Presnell lost his vision in a car accident 13 years ago, he never lost sight of his dream to race his 1968 Chevrolet Camaro.

After Presnell was told he would never see again, the former dirt-track racer went to work on restoring his beloved car -- with the dream of racing it on the Charlotte Motor Speedway one day, reports

"I always sit in the grand stands [at races] and always wonder what it would be like to [drive]," Presnell told the news outlet.

That dream came true when NASCAR star Kenny Wallace hopped in the Camaro's passenger seat and gave the necessary verbal cues for Presnell to cruise at 20 miles per hour down the speedway "flawlessly."
