About Action Trackchairs: After 30 years of being in the recreational motor sports business, Tim Swenson decided to help people to have the freedom of getting off the normal path. We started developing this all terrain wheelchair in 2008, it is called the Action Trackchair. Tim and Donna have a son Jeff, who is in a chair, and know of many other friends that would love the freedom of hunting, hiking, going to the beach, fishing, and other similar activities. The Action Trackchair enables people to have access to those types of activities.
