There are several ways to get from one place to another in Kansas and driving fast is most of them. Crankcase was racing street machines when he was sixteen. This was no great feat since he had been building them from the time he was thirteen. He worked the stock car circuit for years until the boredom hit him like a brick wall. A recruiting sergeant with a crooked smile signed him up for a burst of four with promises of speed and glory. Crankcase graduated Ranger School and Desert Warfare School and attended Special Air Service Tactical Driving School. Qualified expert: M-16, M1911A1, M-60 and TOW.
"Ever get irritable when you're standing in a line that just doesn't seem to be moving at all? Well, the whole world seems to be moving in slow motion to Crankcase, all the time. That's why he's constantly ticked off. He's just not happy unless he has a wheel in one hand, a shifter in the other and the wind in his face."
