Jimmy "Quick Shift" Keegan was a youth in Nevada that enjoyed racing anyone who would accept his challenge in 1957.

History Edit

In 1957, on leaving the Atomic Cafe, Jimmy, his girlfriend Suzie, and his friends Tommy and Lindy came across a military convoy on the road.

Goaded on by his friends, Jimmy raced the lead staff car driven by a "Sgt. Franklin" in his '32 Ford Roadster before simply driving on, firm in the belief that his opponent could not match the speed of his vehicle when the convoy had to make the turnoff to a distant military base. The teens went on their merry way, never suspecting that the "American" soldiers were actually Russians soldiers.

Behind the scenesEdit

Jimmy Keegan was played by an uncredited Adam Kirley in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

While appearing in the film's novelization and its junior novel, Jimmy Keegan and his friends are inexplicable absent from its comic book adaptation, in which the race between the Soviets and the American teenagers is omitted.

In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, Jimmy Keegan and his friends are also omitted. Instead, his part during the desert opening sequence is fulfilled by an unnamed ice-cream man, who gives some ice creams for the Soviet soldiers.
