Meet Jimmie Johnson's first kart racer, Cinderblock

Jimmie Johnson's Anything with an Engine looks to be an interesting spin on the kart racing scene. Here we have the first character reveal for the game, former cement worker Cinderblock. He appears to be made entirely out of concrete and can fire cinder blocks from from the front of his mixer as well as drop concrete abutments behind him.

I have to say, I'm intrigued. I've never been much of a kart racer, but that's because I'm absolutely horrible at them and have no patience for the rubber banding that always seems to plague the genre. From what Abel has seen of this one, it sounds like the team behind Anything with an Engine have some good ideas going here. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this as it speeds toward release later this month.
