Occupation

Piston Cup racer

Flip Dover[1] is a "next-gen" Piston Cup racer currently being sponsored by Intersection. He bears the number 00, the number previously used by Jimmy Cables.

He has the Intersection logo painted on his hood, and the number 00 painted on his doors and roof and has a pink and white livery, the colors of the Intersection logo, and has the same looking Next-Gen model as Daniel Swervez.

History

Flip competes in the 2016 Piston Cup season in Cars 3. He enters the season as a mid-season replacement for the previous Intersection racer, Jimmy Cables. He debuts at the Heartland Motor Speedway, finishing in 26th.

He later appears in the beginning of the 2017 season at the Florida 500 starting in 7th place and managing to stay at the front of the pack. After the crash caused by Cam Spinner, Flip makes a pit stop and restarts in 3rd which is the position he would stay in for the rest of the race up until the final few laps. In the later part of the race, Cruz Ramirez passes him for 3rd though Dover would soon pass Ramirez again as she feels discouraged form a comment by Jackson Storm. Cruz would later pass him again and with other racers also passing him on the final 2 laps. Flip finishes the race in 9th place.

In the end credits he is seen with Daniel Swervez pranking Cruz by inflating her tires just like what Lightning McQueen, Bobby Swift and Guido do to Cal Weathers at the beginning of the movie.

Personality

Much of Flip's personality is unknown, like for most background characters. But he does seem to have a comedic and kind personality as shown when him and Daniel Swervez were pranking Cruz Ramirez.

Trivia

  • Flip’s first name and last name is a resemblance to the verb phrase "flipped over".
  • His diecast from Tomica has a different expression and a different model.
  • Ever since he was first seen in the initial teaser in November 2016, it was believed he was a female due to the later unknown Intersection logo resembling a Breast Cancer Awareness symbol. 11 months later, it was revealed that he is male.
