Description: Rapid Roy is a racer on the stock car circuit, running the dirt track on Sunday afternoons in his souped-up '57 Chevy. He's also driven the figure eight tracks and the demolition derby, and if rumors are to be believed, run moonshine out of Alabama and through Oklahoma City. He's quick with a smile, especially if a camera is near, and usually has a toothpick in his teeth, and extra pack of cigarettes rolled up in his sleeve, and a tattoo on one arm that says "Baby" and another that says "Hey."

Found in Jim Croce's song Rapid Roy (The Stock Car Boy), Rapid Roy is far more Pulp Hero than Dark Champions, even if he drives a '57 Chevy and is probably active in the early 1960s. Runnin' 'shine is a perfect 1930's plot hook for involvement in all sorts of adventures, and Roy's girlfriend Dixie Dawn is just asking to be kidnapped in order to force Roy to drive an important cargo somewhere. Game Masters may want to improve Roy's driving skills by upping his Combat Driving, giving him the Pulp Hero Superskill Working The Pedals, and adding a few more skills (like WF: Handguns or some racing Contacts).
