Route 66 Roller Derby (Rt66RD) is a roller derby league based in Amarillo, Texas. Founded in 2006, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league first began bouting at Amarillo Civic Center for the 2008 season.[1] By the middle of the year, it had already played teams from around the southern United States, and had skaters with a wide range of ages and backgrounds.[2]

In November 2009, Route 66 was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program.[3]
