Alex Roy’s record run documentary “Apex” finally set for release

In 2007, Alex Roy and Dave Maher drove across the United States. They left New York City and arrived in California, needing just 31 hours and 4 minutes to make the trip. That record has since been broken, but it was a big deal when Roy and Maher made their mad dash across the country. Now their story is ready to be fully explored.

Apex: The Secret Race Across America debuts on Sunday October 20th. It will run first on NBC Sports at 9:30 pm ET, but then it will be made available for purchase through iTunes, Amazon, Youtube, and Google Play. The documentary will also make its way to Netflix.

The film contains interviews with a number of people who’ve attempted or held transcontinental records over the years. You can check out the trailer above.

      Then how…? Where…? What…?

      I have so many questions that I don’t know where to begin. But I don’t think that I want to know the answers either.

        Jalop has an article about it. Ed Bolian beat Roy’s record. I won’t knowingly link to a Demuro article so you’ll have to google it.

    For those who like to be seen with a book in their hands, “The Driver” by Roy is an entertaining and hair-raising read about the events.
