    They call him "The Jackal." It was an appropriate nickname for Texan John Purse, since he would do whatever it took to get the win. On the track, he had no friends, and was rabid in the turns. Off the track, though - he quickly became a fan favorite, and is responsible for putting Redline back on the map after their lean years that saw the brand nearly disappear. Yet nothing was about to stop Purse in his quest for the No.1 Pro title.
