Racetrack was a clone trooper that served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Unlike many clones, however, early on, he deserted from the GAR for a brief time before being captured. However, he would be given a chance at redemption.

History[]

Racetrack was born in 32 BBY on the water planet of Kamino, being cloned from the genetic template of Jango Fett.[1][2] He would receive basic training and eventually graduate, being deployed into the Grand Army of the Republic.

However, early in the war, Racetrack would desert from the GAR, leaving his former unit behind.[3] Eventually, he would be captured and brought back to Kamino under Republic captivity. Upon their return, they were greeted by their fellow clone trooper brothers with resentment and disgust. This caused Racetrack to grow bitter of his brothers. It got to the point where another deserter, Heater, broke into a fight with another trooper named Slim.[3] Commander Wolffe of the 104th Battalion broke the fight up, pulling Heater into his office. Wolffe offered Heater a mission that would redeem his name since his desertion has besmirched his reputation. Heater accepted and was given his own squad, which included Racetrack and two other deserters, Charlie and Sync.[3]

The unit, who was assigned to assault a Separatist weapons depot, was still getting used to being back and being around one another. Despite this, they spoke freely. However, while discussing their tactics or reasons for deserting, the gunship they were on was shot down, with the squad, which consisted of Heater, Charlie, Sync, and Racetrack, managing to survive the crash, killing only the pilot.[3] After escaping the threat of immediate danger, the unit created a new plan, which would work as a success, despite Racetrack's consistent complaints and remarks about deserting again. With that, the squad was redeemed, despite their previous desertions.[3]

Armor and Equipment[]

Racetrack was equipped with standard Phase I clone trooper armor as well as the weaponry, such as DC-15S blaster carbines.

Personality and Traits[]

Racetrack was an independent clone, which was one of the two extremes which the training of the GAR had produced; the other being unquestioning in loyalty. Because of his independence, he would desert his original squad. However, he would look back on this with regret and would make an attempt to redeem himself when the opportunity arose.[3]

Racetrack, like a majority of his clone brethren, was born in 32 BBY on the water planet of Kamino.[1][2] He also possessed the same traits of Jango Fett, the prime clone, including his black hair, brown eyes, and a height of 1.83 meters.[1]
