About Doug Henry

Doug Henry (born September 6, 1969 in Milford, Connecticut) is a multi-time AMA championship-winning motocross racer. Doug is a fan-favorite in the sport for his guts and determination, as well as his never-say-die attitude while making comebacks from potentially career-ending injuries.

He had his first major success in 1993 as a member of Team Honda, where he claimed the 125 East Supercross and the 125 National Championship. In 1994, he repeated as champion in the nationals, beating riders such as Steve Lamson and Ryan Hughes while battling a severe stomach ailment. He later appeared on Fox’s first motocross movie Terrafirma . He moved to the premier 250cc division for 1995, where he was immediately competitive, winning supercross mains and outdoor overalls, before a devastating injury at Budds Creek, MD ended his season. Henry was slipping off the back of the bike on the face of a hill, inadvertently applying full throttle, launching him off the hill, causing him to fall from nearly 80 feet in the air to flat ground. Henry’s back was broken, but miraculously he suffered no paralysis with this injury.

Henry had been a regular on the Supermoto tour, winning many National events. He gained national attention once again by winning the gold medal in the 2005 X-Games Supermoto race. He followed that with a bronze in 2006. Henry was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2005.

Henry broke his back on March 4, 2007, in a Supermoto race.,[2] he now suffers partial paralysis from the waist down, and is working very hard toward yet another recovery.

My Life at Speed Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Chris Nazarenus, had a chance meeting with key executives at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1998. It would be the "Jerry McGuire" moment that would change her life forever. Although she knew nothing about motorsports at that time, the chance meeting would influence her passion for all things fast, great stories and interesting people.
