Hot Rod Driver was an unnamed driver of a hot rod on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Played by American actor Jason Rodriguez, Hot Rod Driver was racing another driver in a Mitsubishi Spider when he cut off Jax Teller and Chibs Telford, resulting in the latter "spilling his beer". Jax and Chibs spot the man at a gas station, and decide to "pay him a visit" for what happened earlier. He met his demise during his only appearance, on the episode "Seeds" in the series' first season.
While Jax moves into the store, Chibs stays near the entrance near Bijan the store clerk. Jax walks up to the driver, proceeding to punch him in the face and continues to beat him down while warning him to never cut him off again. He then walks away, however the driver decides to pull a gun out. He tells Jax to "come at me again, asshole!" before firing a shot (which misses, thanks to Bijan pulling Jax down before the shot could hit him). Jax rushes the driver, the two struggling in the aisle until the driver manages to throw Jax down on the ground ready to shoot him. Before he has a chance to fire a bullet, Bijan appears from behind carrying a fireaxe and thrusts it into the back of his head. Before he falls dead on the floor, he turns slightly as if to look at who got him and his head smacks the glass of a case, slumping to the floor dead shortly thereafter.
- The car he was driving was a 1968 Plymouth Satellite convertible.
