You've heard the saying, video games will destroy your life? Meet Rob Radmann, who destroys, that theory.

"To a degree," Jim Radmann, Rob's Dad said. "There's always time to get up here, time to get out of the basement. You better get some clothes on, it's noon!"

Rob Radmann is a 16 year old sophomore at Cedarburg High School, who's take racing games, to the actual track.

"There's a very popular series called Gran Turismo, it's changed a lot of people's lives," Rob Radmann said.

Then it advanced, to go karts, and then sports cars.

"It's nerve-wracking," Jim Radmann said. "I'm excited when he comes off the track and he's won a race or set a track record."

Those records have come on tracks, where legends have gone before him.

"When you really think about it that way it's mind boggling how, I'm out there on the same track as, you know some of the greats have been like Mario Andretti," Rob Radmann said.

And if you don't think Rob doesn't get his hands dirty? Now he will race this frame, built by him, and his Cedarburg High School classmates.

"We're building it through the high school. It's a high school program, that we just started this year," Radmann said.
