Offical photo of X

X Racer is the first son of the legendary Speed Racer and the older brother of Speed Jr. He was not hidden from the world unlike Speed. He was raised at home most likely by Uncle Spritle. He is a top racer at the Racer Academy and cares about becoming famous, which is the total opposite of what his younger brother wants. He is voiced by Robbie Sublett in the first season and by Bryan Tyler in the second season. He has dark brown hair, wears a pale taupe tank top, with a X tattoo in his right arm.


At first, X might come across as a tough guy, but deep down inside, he has a big heart. He cares about his family and friends, wanting to do anything to help them. He also gets upset when things come up in where he sees it, leading him to influence. He can be cocky at times, and he even lets his jealousy and temper get the best of him, which often leads him into trouble. He also is a big believer in what he sees, going to any team in which influences him.


Like Speed, he is a great driver and mostly uses his driving skills to get out of tough situations. He only uses the Shooting Star while racing.
