RECAP: Adaptive Climbing Clinic at Joshua Tree National Park

Climbing has played a pivotal role in my life over the past four years. After I lost my leg above the knee almost six years ago I decided to leave my previous passion, soccer, as a part of my past. By chance I discovered climbing and found a new passion that grew deeper by the day and has helped me push my limits and do things I thought were never possible.

It has always been my belief that climbing is an accessible sport for people with disabilities, so it has been my goal over the past two years to introduce as many people with disabilities to climbing as possible. I have been very successful in this, introducing hundreds of people with disabilities to climbing through various indoor clinics around the country.

MK Ambassador, Richard Kinney: Talladega Super Speedway Recap

Richard Kinney

A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to go to the Talladega Super Speedway, in Talladega, AL. Team owner James Hylton contacted me about coming to the race, as part of the #48 James Hylton Motorsports team in the ARCA Series presented by Menard’s. My job was to help with mechanics and the over-the-wall pit crew during practice. The race was originally scheduled for Friday, which proved to be too much with rough weather conditions and tornadoes in the surrounding areas.

The race was postponed to Saturday morning. The day began at 5 a.m. with our team meeting. With cooler temperatures and wind gusts to 20+ mph ARCA officials gave the clear for the race to begin. I was then asked to serve as spotter on race day taking the tower on the Super Stretch. The checkered flag dropped at 10:00 a.m. for the 250 mile race.
