Piston Cup racer
Herb Curbler is a next-generation Piston Cup racer. He is currently being sponsored by Faux Wheel Drive and bears the number 54, like Tommy Highbanks, Cortland (in the Xbox 360 version of Cars: The Video Game), and Johnny Blamer. He is colored dark green with tire patterns and dirt-like designs in his body.
Herb competes in the 2016 Piston Cup season in Cars 3. He replaces Tommy Highbanks as the Faux Wheel Drive racer and proves to be a very good opponent. He debuts at the Heartland Motor Speedway and finishes in fifth place. At the Los Angeles 500, he starts aside to Buck Bearingly. At the start of the race, the two are seen repeatedly passing and dueling with each other. Herb overtakes him permanently at one point. He is likely in the top three of the race at one point, until Lightning McQueen passes him, followed by Daniel Swervez. He manages to finish in ninth place. At the Florida 500, he starts in fifth position and stays in the top ten for the entire race. Unlike other racers, he is not involved in the wreck caused by Cam Spinner. He restarts in sixth place. At some point in the race, he pits with Cruz Ramirez, who later passes him. He manages to finish the race in seventh place.
- He almost sounds like Brush Curber.
- On his die-cast, he is not supposed to have yellow on his front lip.
