Now retired as a driver. Real name is Bradley. Has a MBA and other management qualifications and hopes to develop a number of business ventures in the future. He also works in the family firm, Bradley Petroleums, as an executive. Calkins' finest achievement was winning the 1996 Disney World IRL race, which was the very first race in the championship's history and then subsequently shared the very first IRL title with Scott Sharp. However, after suffering an injury in 1997, his career never gained the same momentum, and his interest in business took precedence, leading to his retirement in 2001.
