Biography

World Race

Major Jack Wheeler is packing items into his car when Vert Wheeler meets with him. He explains he doesn’t have time to stay with Vert at the training center as he has to ship out with his squad and will simply drop him off. Vert expresses his frustration with this, as Jack had promised to do it on his birthday. Disappointed in Vert’s narrow mind, he declares Vert will someday learn the value of teamwork. Jack then drops Vert off at training facility.

Around the end of the World Race, Jack’s squad stands down and he returns home to find a message from Vert about a race. Dr. Peter Tezla and Gig (who Jack repaired[1]) explain the World Race to him. Vert drives to Tezla’s Cube and meets his father there. Jack says he’s proud of Vert’s growth. Jack still grounds him for a month, but not before requesting a test drive in the Deora II. Jack unintentionally activates the Nitrox 2, and enter the portal through Highway 35. Assumedly, they both safely got out of Highway 35.

Acceleracers

Major Wheeler’s squadron is called up again and he leaves a note for Vert. After leaving the Acceledrome, Vert returns to his family’s home. Vert is in the driveway cleaning his surfboard when Jack drives back home as he had a few things to pick up. He notices that Vert has brought a new motorcycle, with Vert explaining that his car got banged up. Jack tells Vert to be more careful and Vert is reminded how his mother used to always say that to him whenever he left. Afterwards the two then go inside the house.

Inside their home, Jack expresses his regret over the choice between two things that are very important to him. Vert asks his father what his duty would be if someone else could do it better, to which Jack simply asks him what he's been doing lately. Vert simply explains how he is just racing with the Teku. Jack proceeds to tell his son how he doesn't want him hanging out with them, and that he should stay home until he gets back. He leaves asking Vert to quit what he’s doing.

After Vert Wheeler completes the Ultimate Race and arrives at the Silencerz base, Jack walks up to Vert in his Silencer uniform and takes off his helmet, revealing to Vert that he has been working for them the entire time. Jack announces that they need to talk, to which what happens afterwards is unknown.

Trivia

  • In Breaking Point, Major Wheeler has a conversation with Vert Wheeler where we can see his briefcase. In it is a photo of his wife and what seems to be Silencerz car keys. It is likely that Vert's Dad was alluding to the fact that he dedicated more of his time to his military career (or work for the Silencerz) rather than spending time with his wife while she was alive.
  • According to a Reddit AMA with World Race creator Jeff Gomez, Dr. Peter Tezla had originally intended to give the Deora II to Major Wheeler. However, he changed the designation in the last minute. It was written in the script but was not explained on screen.[2]
  • Both World Race and Acceleracers end with scenes featuring Jack Wheeler.
