INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Sam Schmidt is on the track again in Indianapolis.

The once-popular IndyCar driver was left a quadriplegic in a racing accident in 2000. On Sunday, he took to the famed oval in a 2014 Corvette C7 Stingray adapted to his needs.

He completed a modified four-lap run in a car bolstered by infrared sensors, a GPS and other cutting-edge technology that allowed him to steer, brake and turn. Schmidt said that ''driving the car, controlling the car, was the most normal I've felt in 15 years.''

Since his accident, Schmidt has been a revered member of the racing fraternity. He also has been active in the disabled community.
