This is a project that's been near and dear to our hearts here for the last few months. To be honest, it's also REALLY propelled us in to the Ace market by forcing us to come up with a bunch of parts! This thread will chronicle the build of Jesi's Ace but before we begin, here's some information to help you see what this whole thing is all about:

I feel bad for not sharing more about this project all along on the forum but we have been sharing it on our Facebook Page the whole time since it's so much easier for me to do on there. And ultimately, we got in this deal for Jesi. We knew we'd end up getting some great exposure from it but that stuff all comes later. We didn't do it for that. We did it to try paying it forward. Seeing Jesi out in this car and the smile on her face when she comes back is FAR more valuable than anything RT could ever gain from this project.

Jesi Stracham was paralyzed in a motorcycle / car accident Jan. 18 2015. She was a pro women's ATV racer in GNCC up to this point and has been racing GNCC since she was 7 years old. She was recently featured on the Today show with her boyfriend Jordan who was also recently paralyzed. Check out the feature HERE to learn about this couples incredible journey thus far.

To add a little to this story from the powersports industry's perspective and hopefully help explain where RT and a bunch of other great companies came in to play check out THIS STORY to see how Polaris actually started this whole thing.

To add to the story in the link above, the official video will be coming out this month. We will need EVERYONE to help Jesi by sharing the final video to get as many views as we can to help her win this Ace. Please stay tuned!

This girl is absolutely blowing up already and her fame is growing from this story but I think she's destined for even bigger things. Here's some more articles and videos of her to get you hearts fluttering even more! There is also a GoFundMe account someone setup to help her get some assistance in affording all the life changes she's needing to make while she's in a wheelchair and also to help afford all the rehabilitation her insurance isn't covering.
