In Cars, Aiken competed in the Dinoco 400 at the Motor Speedway of the South in Motor City, United States, which was the final race of the Piston Cup season. During the race he had a high position on the track. After Chick Hicks caused a huge accident between the majority of the competitors, Aiken received small damages, but was able to continue racing. Axler managed to get a good pit stop and restarted in 3rd place just behind Ernie Gearson and Lightning McQueen. He stayed near the top of the pack for the rest of the race and finished in 5th coming in after the three-way tie and Kevin Shiftright. Aiken had finished 8th overall in the season due to being in that position in the point standings.
Somewhere between the events after Cars and before Cars 3, he stopped competing in the Piston Cup Racing Series and was replaced by Phil Tankson, the new Nitroade racer until Tim Treadless replaced him.
