Local track owner Scott Taylor is Kye's main rival in the New Orleans area. Also from Mississippi, Scott races a 1992 Cutlass, which he calls John Doe. Scott owns a towing company and runs a race track, which gives him the means and the time to work non-stop on making his car as fast as it needs to be to outrun Kye.
Scott's main ally in the racing community is Brandon Smith, a small tire racer who rivals Kye's friend Bobby. Together, Brandon and Scott aim to beat Bobby and Kye. Scott is married to Heather, who is his biggest fan and supports his racing unconditionally.
