Rush vector

Rush is a giant, Viking-like racer who, despite his intimidating appearance, is a very friendly, good natured person. Rush's star-racer, the Stonecrusher, is made of a unique metal from his homeworld that is nigh-unbreakable. However, it is also faster than it looks, thanks to its powerful magma-fueled engines. Rush sits atop his racer, controlling it and its two extendable arms with a pair of circular control yokes.

Rush's first appearance is in Hostilities Break Out, when Molly nearly gets run over by his star-racer on her way to get fuel. Rush is officially introduced in Treacherous Like Toros as one of the six pilots who made it to the play-offs on Alwas. In Resistant Like Rush, he competes against the Earth Team in a target race and proves himself to be a tough opponent, but ultimately loses thanks to Jordan's shooting skills. He later saves Molly from drowning after she becomes trapped inside flooding ruins. When asked why he was following them, he tells Molly and Jordan that he came to congratulate them on beating him in the race earlier that day. Apparently, on his planet the people are kown for being optimistic and looking on the bright side of things, as expressed by his saying his ram's horn is always half-full.

In The Will to Win, Rush competes against Toros. When Toros reveals to him that he was the Crog who led the invasion of his home world Byrus, Rush becomes enraged and tries to board Toros's ship. Toros defeats him by driving his ship into a bridge over the race course, burying Rush in a pile of rubble and knocking him out of the playoffs. Badly injured, Rush reveals to Molly that he had wanted to use the Ultimate Prize to undo the damage that the Crogs had done to his home world, but admits that perhaps he wanted revenge more.

Rush's last appearance is in Make Way! Knowing the Earth Team is racing Toros, he escapes from his hospital bed to watch the race and cheers the loudest for them.
