Dexter also appeared in the comic, Wash Day.

Official bio

"As a youngster Dex dreamed of being a real race car. A 4-cylinder compact pickup isn't exactly designed for the racetrack, but Dex found a way to put himself in the middle of his favorite sport. He climbed the ranks from selling pennant flags in the stands to top flagman on the circuit. His unorthodox caution flag pattern is a thing of beauty, and if it weren't for Dex, the races would never start -- and they'd never end."[1]

Trivia

  • Dexter's license plate number, A113CA, is a reference to A113, the classroom in which several Pixar animators attended and also Mater's license plate.
  • In Cars: Fast as Lightning, when the player passes the finish line, Dexter is waving a green flag, but in race cutscenes that immediately follow, he is waving a checkered flag.
