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 four year tour with the promises of speed and glory. Crankcase graduated Ranger School and Desert Warfare School and attended the Special Air Service Tactical Driving School under the NATO exchange programme. Qualified Expert: M-16, M1911A1, M-60 and TOW.
“Ever get irritable when you´re standing in a queue 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 fed-up. He´s just not happy unless he has a wheel in one hand, a gear stick in the other and the wind in his face.”
