But she hated being behind the fence and entered her husband’s new Ford coupe. She wrecked out, hopped a bus home and conjured up a lie to tell Mr. Smith about the missing car, only to find out a photo of his smashed Ford was in the local papers. “We did so much research on NASCAR history, and these four jumped out as these incredible stories of inspiration,” director Brian Fee says of the Cars 3 dirt-track quartet.

But why wait for the June 16 debut to meet the rides who put McQueen back on track? Here’s a sneak peek at the new characters — and the racers who inspired them. Mater is a good old boy with a good heart and the only tow truck in the radiator springs. Though a little rusty, he is the first to raise a helping hand. Learn how to draw Lightning McQueen from Disney Pixar’s Cars movies in this step by step drawing tutorial.
Like Chick, he was sponsored by Hostile Takeover Bank with his number 13 on his sides. He also has Nitroade and ReVolting sponsor stickers on his sides. His catch phrase is “I’m bigger than big, badder than bad, I am El Machismo!
Petrov was possibly intended to be a major henchman similar to Grem and Acer as he appears in place of Grem in concept art of the airport chase and is shown as such in merchandise. Rod Redline was considered by many as America’s greatest spy. He is the agent McMissile and Shiftwell were supposed to meet before he ran into Mater, which leads to the mistake of the spy cars thinking Mater is Rod Redline. He is a crossover between a 2005 Mustang GT and a Dodge Challenger R/T. His license plate suggests that he is from Michigan, which is where Bruce is from.
Leland Turbo was a British agent who appeared in the film’s beginning. He sends a video message to Finn McMissile about what he sees in Professor Zündapp’s oil rig. However, by the time Finn arrives at the rig, the lemons have found Leland and crushed him into a cube. All of Mater’s Cousins appear in all of the Rustbucket races in the first four Cars video games often racing against Mater and sometimes Lightning McQueen and Emma. Leroy Traffik, a minivan with a mattress on his roof and a temporary spare as his right-rear wheel, passes a tired Mack just before the truck stop. He is seen with new tires from Luigi’s during the film’s epilogue.
But when it’s all said and done he’s really just a shy guy, who enjoys quiet time with his friends and family. In the now-popular tourist destination of Radiator Springs, the rusty old tow truck Mater has a number of roles, including proprietor of Tow Mater Towing and Salvage, grand storyteller and the heart and soul of the town. But Mater’s favorite title is best friend to Lightning McQueen. Mater values each and every dent he’s earned on his escapades with Lightning over the years, and anxiously awaits further fun with his friend when Lightning returns with his latest Piston Cup. As writers, we constantly struggle with how we can get the message and story of our characters across the screen.
