    Chad Cole Engine (born September 21, 1962) is a Randomese former race driver who competed in RARCAR from 1985 to 2018, most known for driving the No. 29 Tony's Toys car for Energetic Engines. He holds the record for most Cup Series championships, winning five times (a record tied with Jacob Melvin II) while also winning a record over 200 races during his career. This included winning the Fried Chicken 500 a record eight times and winning a record 27 races (16 of them consecutively) in one season (1993). He had a friendly rivalry with Jacob Melvin II and is widely believed to be the greatest driver in the history of RARCAR.

    His dad Cole also competed in RARCAR from 1980 until 1991 due to a career ending crash. His son Cameron is currently one of the commentators for current races, he is also related to Joey Jim Jones, who started competing in 2017.

    Early life[edit | edit source]

    Chad was born in Awesomeness City, but shortly moved to Random City after turning one. His dad Cole, was a successful Formula 1 driver at the time of his birth, which lead Chad to having an obsession with racing.

    Chad was raised mostly by his mom, since his dad had to travel all around the world to participate in F1 races. Because of a bakery his mom had owned and worked in, Chad was able to have a very healthy childhood.

    Chad attended Random-ness School, and graduated in 1981, which was around the same time RARCAR was first being broadcasted.

    Racing career[edit | edit source]

    1984-1985: Beginnings[edit | edit source]

    Chad joined the RARCAR Genesis Series and first raced in 1984, his first race was a 1/3 dirt track, he did well, and scored 6th. His win came shortly after in another 1/3 racetrack. He got another win next year.

    On September 28, 1985, a week after his 23rd birthday, Chad was accepted into the RARCAR Cup Series and was part of his dad's "Energetic Engines" team. Chad didn't do well in his first race, finishing 32nd after being collected in a crash. However, Chad surprisingly got his very first win in his next race, the 1985 Real Awesomeness 500. During the last lap, the two leaders collided and spun in the final turn of the track, Chad, who was at fourth place at the time, now became the leader, as third place couldn't avoid one of the cars and impacted it near its rim. A 23-year old Chad was declared winner and awarded about $10,000. Chad completed the last few races of the year in pretty good positions, the best being 3rd. He scored 4th in points. Towards the end of the year, Chad finally had a car number and sponsor.
