New ‘cars 3’ Characters Inspired By Nascar Legends
During his rookie season, he tried to ram Doc Hudson into a wall, but Hudson flipped over him . Since then, they have become rivals until Hudson suffered a deadly rollover crash in ’54 permanently ending his racing career. Leroy soon won the Piston Cup after Hudson’s retirement. He formerly raced for Re-Volting, and Faraday Valley Dealers, with the number 300. His design is inspired by Tim Flock’s 1955 car from NASCAR.
During the showdown in London, Vladimir gets briefly blinded when Flo shines her headlights on him and he gets parking booted by Sheriff. Alexander Hugo is part of the Hugo family that works for Professor Z and Miles Axlerod. He is the only black bodyguard Lemon in the entire movie to talk, making him and Victor the only Hugo family members that talk. Despite his young age, he does dirty work and attends the lemon meeting.
He is mentioned by Darrell Cartrip in the game’s Story Mode before the first Piston Cup race at the Palm Mile Speedway. In a deleted scene on the DVD, much of their dialogue (heard at the sponsors’ tent in the final script) was originally part of a brief stop at the Top Down Truck Stop. On the die-cast cars, Rusty’s license plate states “Rust” and Dusty’s sports “Eze”. Their license plates are from “R Fair City”, a term the Car Talk brothers use to describe their home town of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Prior to the final leg of the World Grand Prix, he secretly switches McQueen’s supply of Allinol for Fillmore’s organic fuel blend. Like Fillmore he became suspicious of the fuel after the incidents in Japan and Italy. The change saves McQueen from being killed as part of Axlerod’s plot to discredit alternative fuels.
Took over as Dinoco racer after his uncle Strip Weathers retired and became his crew chief. Cal Weathers is numbered 42, and is a blue Capital Motors Mark II Piston Cup Stock Car with blue rims. He often races with Lightning McQueen and Bobby Swift and constantly pull pranks with each other after a race. Unlike his uncle, he seemed to be one of the weak Dinoco racers and never won any Piston Cups , though he does win some races as shown when he beats McQueen in a close finish at Rocker Arms Speedway. He later retires when new next gen racers including Jackson Storm take over the sport.

I believe that the vehicles authors choose have the power to shape character and to shape a scene. My main character grew up in a rural area and drives a Chevy Silverado pickup. But when he’s chasing a lead or at the hottest point of his investigation, he often borrows his father-in-law’s 1972 Dodge Charger.
