Tsukamoto was a high school senior when Takumi and Natsuki Mogi were freshmen, but now he is mildly involved with the street racing scene in Akagi. Although he believes that his skills are extreme, they are in fact far from it. He soon experiences real extreme driving when Takumi drives his 180SX down Akagi after a request by Natsuki to pass a cocky couple in a Silvia S13, leading to Tsukamoto fainting. He witnessed Takumi's race with Kyoichi Sudo, and later crashed his 180SX on Akagi, almost being hit by Keisuke Takahashi and Wataru Akiyama during their impromptu battle.
