The '55 Chevy Nomad, Gaige's Car

From Florida, Gaige Avant was recruited by Dr. Tezla; He drives the '55 Nomad. Because, of his extreme surfing skills and ability to restore cars from scrap to showroom. When he was a young boy he was surfing and mastered it when he got to high school and keeps attempting to reach champion status. Gaige Is the founder of the nickname for Toby, "Quiet Lee" He is a very relaxed driver and always determined to win the race!

At the party after the second leg he revealed his deepest fear which happened to be thunder. When he was younger his house caught on fire and ended up killing his younger sister, Gionna and his parents. He surfs and restores cars so he can keep his mind off of that.

After the Desert Leg, When Thomas' father came to get Toby arrested, Toby stole the '55 Nomad and drove it off a cliff but Gaige was able to stop him and grapple the Nomad onto the cliff and then threw Toby off the cliff to be taken by Henry Schmitt's squadron.
