Piston Cup racer
Kevin Racingtire is a professional stock race car. As number 35 on the Shifty Drug driving team, he took part in several Piston Cup seasons.
In Cars, Kevin is seen with the rest of the 2005 Piston Cup racers at the Motor Speedway of the South. When Chick Hicks causes the huge crash, he is one of the first to be hit, colliding with Brush Curber and Davey Apex, and suffers some minor damage, though he is still able to continue racing, and finishes in 22nd place.
He is a Capitol Motors Verve XT that is painted a pinkish-red color, with yellow on his doors, hood and spoiler. He has white rims, as well as the Shifty Drug logo on his hood and the number 35 painted in white on his doors and roof. The Capitol Motors Verve XT was mostly based on the Ford Taurus NASCAR.
Profiles and statistics
- "With little natural athletic ability, knowledge of racing's rich history or understanding of its complex rules, it's a wonder Kevin Racingtire has been able to sustain himself in the Piston Cup circuit for as long as he has. He attributes his success to his family, particularly his father-in-law, who is the owner of the large pharmaceutical company that just so happens to sponsor the team he races for."
- Kevin's die-cast was initially colored dark red and yellow, but was changed to the proper color of pink and yellow in 2015.
