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.
