Garrett Goodwin took gold in 2015 with otherwise undefeated SnoCross Adaptive champ Mike Schultz out with injuries, then suffered injuries of his own that kept him out in 2016. Now he's looking for a proper head-to-head battle with Schultz. Goodwin puts his mechanical engineering studies to good work, and he designed and fabricated the custom Fox Float seat he uses. The 24-year-old comes from a long line of snowmobile racers and tuners (his dad, Greg, was a champion oval racer) and has three years of X Games racing experience under his belt. With powerful turning skills and his modified racing seat, Garrett -- a T-10 paraplegic -- is a strong threat on the rough SnoCross track.
- 10 paraplegic; paralyzed from just above the waist down due to a motocross accident in July 2011.
- 3 previous XG appearances: Gold in 2015, silver in 2014 and bronze in 2013.
- 2nd at ISOC Snocross Adaptive Round 1, Jan. 6, 2017, behind Mike Schultz.
- Will graduate with mechanical engineering degree from Grand Valley State University in Michigan, May 2017.
- Has raced snowmobile snocross since 1997; his father Greg was a championship
- level snowmobile racer in the oval discipline.
