"Don't take me out, coach. I can still race!"
Chuck Armstrong, Cars

Chuck Armstrong is a professional race car who competed in the Piston Cup Racing Series. He is extremely allergic to certain types of fuels, and as a result, he has to stay at least five feet away from them. Because other Piston Cup racers used different kinds of fuels, Chuck became infamous among other racers for his allergies, causing other cars to be afraid to pass him.[1] Despite this, Chuck also has a reputation for being one of the toughest and most determined racers. In one season, while suffering from a worn-out clutch, Chuck managed to push through and bump-start himself enough to emerge victorious.[1]

History

Cars

Chuck is towed away.

In Cars, Chuck is one of the thirty-six Piston Cup racers who compete in the Dinoco 400, the final race of the season at the Motor Speedway of the South. During the race, Chick Hicks causes a multi-car pileup between several of the racers. Armstrong crashes and flies a long distance before landing, receiving heavy cosmetic damage. Once the crash subsides, Tow is seen pulling Chuck away from the track, while he cries to his crew chief "Don't take me out, coach. I can still race!"

The Rookie

While Chuck does not appear in the actual comic itself, he is seen on one of the covers for The Rookie. He is one of several race cars piled up on top of one another, while Lightning McQueen is trying to navigate through them.

Physical description

Armstrong is an Axxelo Fission stock car and uses Lightyear racing tires. He has blue eyes and a black grille that resembles a mustache. He is painted in a dark blue livery and has the white Mood Springs logo on his hood, as well as the number 33 on his doors and roof.

The Axxelo Fission is based on the 1995 NASCAR version of the Chevrolet Monte Carlo.[citation needed]

Profile Name and make Description

Axxelo Fission
Chuck Armstrong has always had a slight allergy to certain fuels. As a result those fuels make it a little difficult for him to be within a five foot radius of them. Once he started racing professionally, not only did the problem not go away, it actually got worse at high speeds. It got so bad the other cars didn't want to pass him. Chuck hopes he's a good example of how a problem can be an asset.

Axxelo Fission
Chuck Armstrong is the toughest kid in the racing business. Last season, while suffering from a worn-out clutch, he got back on the track and bump-started himself all the way to Victory Lane. You can never count Chuck out, not if he's still got some engine left.

Trivia

  • When Chuck is shown flying through the air, he has a high-pitched voice, but when he speaks while being towed away, it is lower-pitched.
  • In Cars: The Video Game, a racer named Banks competes in the 2006 Piston Cup season instead of Armstrong. His number is 34 in most versions of the game, but he retains the number 33 in the Xbox 360 version.
  • Prototype images of Chuck's die-cast model incorrectly depict him as a Capitol Motors Verve XT. The actual release, however, remains accurate to his appearance in Cars.
  • In the 2018/2019 die-cast mainline, he is mistakenly called Dud Throttleman.
  • He is one of the five Piston Cup racers that have a speaking role other than Lightning McQueen, Strip Weathers, Chick Hicks, and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
