On Track, the leader in customized education for motocross athletes looking to obtain a cutting edge education, has awarded Samuel Erasmus a scholarship in honor of James and Sonya Stewart.
"South African Samuel "Sampie" Erasmus travels a long way to compete at X Games. The South African Motorsports Council will not allow paraplegic riders to ride on motocross tracks, so he sticks to a lone private track to practice, and comes all the way to the U.S. to race. But what a racer he is. Erasmus was on the verge of turning pro in 2004 before he crashed and became paralyzed from the chest down. He didn't get back on a bike for four years until he heard about Extremity Games and XG Super X Adaptive. Last year he took sixth in XG Adaptive, with Ricky James just edging him as the top paraplegic rider. In May of 2010, he dominated the Limb-Difference (paraplegic) class at Extremity Games. Expect another battle with James for top paraplegic honors at XG this year." - ESPN
Andrea: "On Track has recently received 501 C3 status as a non-profit school making it possible to accept scholarship donations that are 100% tax deductible as well as write grants for federal funding. We can finally sponsor students in need of both financial support and an education while they pursue their career goals in motocross. Anatoliy came to us months ago with the hope of such an opportunity. The Stewart family provided for a scholarship while I was at Loretta's and it was destiny for Anatoliy to be the recipient. Thank you James and Sonya for recognizing this need and making a dream come true."
Samuel: "Thank you, thank you! I would like to thank James and Sonya Stewart and have the opportunity to tell them that it really means a great deal to me! When Andrea told me that I was receiving a scholarship due to the donation they have recently made, it made my day! I really want to improve myself and I think that this will give me a good base to work from."
Andrea: "It has been the greatest pleasure to be able to sponsor young dedicated athletes who strive for excellence both on and off the track. Thanks to James and Sonya, Sampie will continue his education and prepare with On Track to soon enroll in our college credit online courses. What a blessing!"
