Unconfirmed reports today say that James B. Asbell, A.K.A., Jimmy, set the land speed record today for the category of a 68 year old male Post Polio Syndrome patient with Stage IV colon cancer using crutches!
The blazing foot speed and the flashing titanium crutches were a sight for all to behold at the Relay for Life event on the shores of Lake Sahaurita this bright and sunny day. Jimmy predicted his record will hold until next year when he “smokes” it! That Jimmy is a cocky one, for sure.
Jimmy gave credit to his pit crew , Lee and Teresa, who made certain there was plenty of tread on his crutches throughout the grueling race and all his fans who cheered him on.
