Racer Dopkins is a major antagonist of the 2014 film Cooties. He is a schoolboy at Ft. Chicken Elementary School and one of many children on the playground to be infected with the food-borne virus that transforms children into zombie-like monsters. He is also the son of Emily Dopkins and has a baby brother until he infects him to kill their own mother.
He was portrayed by Aiden Lovekamp.
Racer was a normal child. When he contracted the virus, He became sadistic, bloodthirsty, and cannibalistic like the other infected children. However, He found himself amusing by letting his baby brother to kill their own mother.
Pre-infection, Racer was presumably a normal child. This all changes after a tainted batch of chicken nuggets from Happy Poultry Farms is delivered across North America during the summer of 2014. One day in Fort Chicken, Illinois (where the film is set) a fourth grader named Shelley Linker inadvertently infects herself with the virus through her lunch.
When the virus in children outbreaks, Racer gets infected and starts a killing spree with the other children. When it's almost school dismissal, Racer's mother name Emily Dopkins arrives early to pick her up son while the survivors are on the balcony to call for help. Suddenly, they see Racer going to the parent's car and try to call her not to let him in, but they're highly too far away from the parking lot. However, it's too late when Racer got in the car and infects his baby brother, and the infected baby kills Mrs. Dopkins, much to the survivors' shock in a result.
Later at the fun center near the film's climax, Racer and the kids ambushed the teachers and pursued them. Wade, having survived the onslaught, arrives and drenches the ground with gasoline to light up the fire. Racer and all the other kids are killed in the fires, and the teachers drove off to somewhere else where no kid has been.
