While working as the head mechanic of a transportation company in May 1997, Jay Blake was involved in an industrial accident that caused him to lose complete vision, smell, and taste. At the age of 31, he was faced with relearning how to live as a completely blind person.
Refusing to give up on life, Jay aggressively participated in rehabilitation and with renewed determination Jay began to follow his dream, of owning a professional auto-racing team. He soon learned that even without sight, he was still able to do what he loved most-work on racing engines. Turning his dream into a reality, Jay combined his renewed participation in drag racing with his desire to spread his true-life success by inspiring others to accomplish their goals through the Power of Positive Thinking, Self-Determination, and Teamwork.
