Chad Fortune

Chad Fortune was born August 13, 1967 in Roswell, Georgia.
He is a former professional football player (associated with the Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears at various times), a former pro wrestler for both the WWF and WCW and a monster truck driver.

Under the ring name "Travis", he teamed with Erik Watts (under the ring name Troy) in the WWF as "Tekno Team 2000".
The gimmick never really took off in the WWF and both men were released.

Chad went to WCW in 1997, and tag teamed with Dale Torborg as "The Pit Crew".
Chad was one of the wrestlers released by WCW in October 1999.

After that, Dale began driving the WCW Nitro Machine truck.
Then he drove Karl Malone's "Power Forward" truck for three years.
But probably his coolest truck was the Superman truck in 2005.
Chad dyed his hair black and adopted a Superman themed racing outfit.
He actually looked pretty good.
And he did well.
Chad was voted the Most Improved Driver at the Monster Jam World Finals Awards Banquet in 2005.
