About

About Fuelled

Fuelled is the biography of nitro drag racer Benny Stevens, a man with a life story almost too crazy to be true and a literal never-say-die attitude.

Growing up in a family of market gardeners, Benny lived in an unpredictable environment of arguments, excess, questionable decision making and uncertainty.

He survived his teenage years, narrowly, but Benny's world was turned upside down with a cancer diagnosis in his early twenties. The toughest fight of a rough and tumble existence was a challenge he relished.

Given a second chance at life, Benny was an adrenaline junkie without fear, jumping motorcycles and quad bikes off giant ramps and putting his body on the line. Then came the accident that would change his life - and his right leg - forever.

Benny's power to think positively and demand the best of himself made him an inspiration as he begun his nitro drag racing career and his quest to become the world's quickest and fastest amputee.

But in a heart wrenching twist, it would not be Benny's own life threatened again. Could he bring someone he loved through their darkest hour?

Fuelled is a collection of amazing tales from a young Australian larrikin who lives life on the edge - and often past it.

Why I'm writing this book

We only get one life. No matter how much we wonder what it is like to be somebody else, we only get our own lives. 

My life has been stranger than most and I've experienced things that very few people ever expect to happen in their lives - and all before I was 30! But all the challenges, the highs and the lows, have taught me that you only get one life and you need to fight for it.

I'm writing this book not just to tell some funny yarns but also to give people hope that no matter how bad things seem, there are always things to look forward to. Happy days!

- Benny

Want to read it? Back it!

Many of you reading this will know of Benny and his tall tales and this book will bring them all to you. We know there are some real legends out there so we need you to back this project. We've come up with sweet incentives (the launch party will go off, highly recommend getting on board at that $200+ level). 

The way Kickstarter works is 'all or nothing' - we need to reach the goal so we can enter production. If we don't reach the goal, all money is returned. We know you guys will dig deep though and we are going to supply you one of the most entertaining books you will ever read in return! 

Risks and challenges

Anyone who has met Benny knows that he has a story for every situation.
This takes time to record, transcribe and then write these stories into a book that lasts much longer than a Nitro Harley drag race but provides just as much excitement. Your support will provide the backing needed to make this book a reality.
Kickstarter is an 'all or nothing' platform, meaning if the project goal is not reached then your money is returned.
