The first day with a driver's license!  What a thrill.  And Jake is the only 9th grader to have one.  Of course, he is repeating the 9th grade but it is still pretty cool to have a license.  To celebrate, his brother has loaned him his car.  His pride and joy.  The car that the two of them have rebuilt.  The car that could beat anyone!  Of course Jake has no intention of street racing.  That is just such a stupid thing to do.  But a challenge is a challenge.  He didn't expect anyone to get hurt.
