Kamikaze was brought onto the 405 list by Big Chief, his childhood friend and fellow racer. Chief, Flip and Kamikaze grew up riding bikes together. Kamikaze’s father used to race cars and boats and acted as a second father to Chief. It’s through Kamikaze’s father that he and Chief got into racing. Kamikaze is the one that gave Big Chief his nickname.
When Chief originally took his car off The List, Kamikaze was tired of everyones’ egos and took a break from racing as well. With Flip’s El Camino, “The Elco” sitting in the barn for the past year Chief felt it was time to pass the reigns to Kamikaze now that he’s back in the scene. Used parts and junk piece the El Camino together so any driver who hops behind the wheel must be crazy. A person like Chris, nicknamed Kamikaze, is perfect for it.
