Description: Brought since he was just a baby to be part of the racing scene, the protagonist of the song Daddy’s Cup is bound and determined to finally win the race that will see his father’s name engraved on the championship cup. His father prepared him for his by having him identify engine parts after pouring them from a bucket, and would bring him to the race and analyze drivers based on the actions. Eventually, he bought his own car, and with his father’s and uncle’s help, turned into a race car. He’s gone through a lot of cars since, won some and lost more, but refuses to give up.

The unnamed narrator of the song Daddy’s Cup, comes from the Drive-By Trucker’s album The Dirty South. Although a contemporary character and well-suited for Dark Champions games, he could be dropped into a Pulp Hero game with ease. In fact, you could link him with John Lee Pettimore III and Rapid Roy the Stock Car Boy to make a group of car-based moonshine runners.
