FULL NAME: Ricardo Lerma
Although he went to the same high school as Spence, they didn't become friends until much later after discovering they shared an interest in imports, nitrous oxide, and talking trash. Ricky has a feud with the D-Sun Drifters (although it’s nothing serious) which dates back to an embarrassing loss he received from “Fearless” Terry. This explains why he dislikes Rin’s friendship with the other team.
Ultimately, Ricky wants to become a mechanic and have his own shop. He
justifies his current street racing lifestyle as “research”
for this future career.
