The Road Pirates are the main antagonists of Team Hot Wheels: Bulid the Epic Race. All is well in Hot Wheels City, until the scourge of the road arrives. The Road Pirates. The nastiest and most dangerous threat Hot Wheels City has ever seen. They’ll stop at nothing to get all of the treasure that Hot Wheels City has to offer, even the city itself!! They have been defeated by Team Hot Wheels for trying to take over Hot Wheels City.
At a highway, a bus is making its way to Hot Wheels City until it is spotted by Road Pirates. The captain of the Road Pirates, Greasebeard, orders his crew to go after it. As they raid it, Greasebeard is about to introduce himself to the passengers until Scurvey butted in. This annoys Greasebeard, which makes him smack Scurvey upside the head with his retch hand. As they pillage the bus, however, they see Team Hot Wheels, driving in Rev to build their race track. They drive after them, where they are led to Larry's garage. Once they entered Larry's secret lab, they find a giant vault in front of them, where it contains the vehicle, Rev. They try several ways to open it, but had no luck. As the vault finally opens from the inside, they see Larry with the key. In order to get the key from Larry, Greasebeard devises a way to break up Team Hot Wheels. As they arrive at the opening before the Epic Race, they see Wyatt doing massive destruction to it. Team Hot Wheels, mad at him, says to Wyatt that a monkey could take his place, This encouraged Swab to drive in his truck, making Wyatt quit the team. Wyatt then decides to become a new hero called, "Golden W." With their plan going into play, Tankard, Longshank, and Grog causes mass destruction throughout the city, in order to lead Team Hot Wheels away. Meanwhile, Scurvey and Greasebeard stuffs Larry in a bag, and then steals the key from him that leads to Rev. The Road Pirates lead Team Hot Wheels to their ship. where they have an epic battle there. Team Hot Wheels defeats the Road Pirates, but then Greasebeard appears before them in his ship, now powered by Rev. He then reveals Wyatt to them and is about to kill him, until Team Hot Wheels challenges him and the Road Pirates to a race. If Team Hot Wheels win, the pirates return Wyatt and Rev to them. However, if the Road Pirates, they take over the city. Before the race begins, Greasebeard keeps Wyatt as his hostage on a sidecar, keeping anyone from touching his vehicle. As the race starts, the Road Pirates decides to play dirty to their advantage.
