Claude Scruggs was a stock race car. He was a professional racing driver who competed in the Piston Cup Racing Series for more than two decades. As number 52 on the Leak Less driving team, he took part in several Piston Cup seasons.


Claude Scruggs became the Leak Less racer somewhere in the 1970s-80s. In 2006, his crew chief was Earl Filter and his team of mechanics included Stacy.

In 2006, Scruggs has traveled to the Motor Speedway of the South to compete in the Dinoco 400, the final race of that year's season. After Chick Hicks causes a large crash, Scruggs is one of many involved. At one point, Scruggs comes to a stop after spinning out of control, in front of Billy Oilchanger. The two giggle nervously, before another car slams Oilchanger away, and Todd Marcus bumps into Claude. Marcus flipped upside down in the air and landed roof-to-roof with Scruggs. The two eventually spin out and come to a halt, and Lightning McQueen later uses Scruggs to propel himself into the air and over the remainder of the crash. Despite his injuries, Scruggs is fixed up, and he continues the race, though he does not place highly.

Sometime between the 2006 and 2016, Scruggs stepped down as the Leak Less racer, and Brian Spark takes his place.

Official profiles

  • Some would say that Leakless Adult Dripping Pans is not a prestigious sponsor, but Claude Scruggs would disagree, he's been the #52 yellow, black and white for more than two decades and he wears the Leakless logo with pride. His fan base might be a bit older but thanks to the automotive boom of the late 1940s there are a lot of them and their enthusiasm for the sport and for Scruggs is so intense they can barely contain themselves.
