Race car driver J.J. McClure. Playing his mild-mannered mechanic counterpart, Victor Prinzim, (with a superhero alter ego, Captain Chaos, always waiting in the wings). Together, they participate in the Cannonball Run in an ambulance -- a heavily modified Dodge Tradesman van which, incidentally, was the same vehicle driven by director Hal Needham during the running of the real Cannonball.
