Driver Testimonials

Mario Andretti, Formula One and Indy Car Titlist

“Sports Medicine has helped me a number of times after an injury. When you drive a race car, it’s not IF you get hurt, but WHEN you get hurt. It’s important that I get back in the car as quickly as possible and in the best possible condition.” That is what the Human Performance Center guys do best.”

Johnny Rutherford, Three-time Indy 500 Winner

“Indy cars are quite physical to drive. If you don’t get into shape and find out what you need to stay in shape, then you are not going to do a good job. The sports medicine guys provide a mobile facility right at the track to help us with conditioning and rehabilitation. This makes a huge difference of how you perform in the race car.”

Richard Petty, Seven-time Sprint Cup Champion

“The sports medicine boys were always there if I needed them, even if it was something I had done back at the shop.  I could always go over to the Human Performance Center truck and they would help me or any of my guys with the bumps and bruises." 

Darrel Waltrip, Four-time Sprint Cup Champion

“We have needed a program like this for a long time. Other professional sports use it and I don’t know of a sport that needs sports medicine more than racing. It sure helped me when I injured my leg and now I am in better condition than I have ever been. It goes back to what I learned from the sports medicine guys at the track.”

Danny Sullivan, Indy 500 and World Series Champion

“Drivers are athletes and when we have an injury, unfortunately we have to get right back into competition. So we need the sports medicine program to speed up the process and also make it more comfortable in the car. The Human Performance Center for Motorsports staff helped me on many occasions and I appreciate them being there.”

Cowboy Testimonials

Ty Murray, Bareback, Saddle Bronc and Bull Rider

"The bull riders probably use them the most, but you see other guys and even the barrel racers in there. They help everybody in all the events. "The help they give you is tremendous, but they also help educate the cowboys on how to tape, how to stretch and how to exercise an injury. Things like that make a big difference, too." 

Trevor Brazile, Calf Roper, Team Roper and Steer Roper

"When you're injured and not at the top of your game you start looking for MSMS Sports Medicine at specific events and head over to their room because if you are not at 90% you’re not going to win. It's a big relief to have the sports medicine guys around and knowing they are there and know how to treat our injuries, it's just a good feeling."   

Joe Baumgartner, Bullfighter

The guys are lifesavers. I’ve been lucky to only get hurt when they were there. Whenever we need something they’re there to help. And they know we want to get back to work as soon as it’s safe, so they don’t say, ‘No, you shouldn’t.’ They say, ‘How can we?’" 

Joe Beaver, Tie-Down Roper and Team Roper

"They have gotten me back into competition more times than I can even remember. Dr. J. Pat Evans knows how to treat rodeo cowboy’s injuries better than anyone on the planet. I owe a big portion of my timed events championships to J. Pat and all of the Mobile Sports Medicine Systems staff." 

Cody Ohl, Tie-Down Roper and Steer Roper

“Sports medicine has been real good for me and especially at the Timed Events Championship where you can go to the training room every day and get worked on so you are at your best every performance. When I was hurt a couple of years ago I was very fortunate that sports medicine was at a lot of events I was going to and they keep me together and I healed up a lot faster with them being there." 

Pete Hawkins, Bareback Rider and Rodeo Coach

"Its God sent. The guys take care of us day after day, especially at the big events like Toughest Cowboy where you have to get on three different animals and may have to compete on more.  Plus, it's good to see a familiar face when you're on the road. I know them and they know me so they know what I need to do to get better."
