Piston Cup racer
Parker Brakeston is a Piston Cup racer. His number is 68, and he supersedes Manny Flywheel as the racer for the N2O Cola team and competes in the 2016 Piston Cup season, prior to being replaced by H.J. Hollis.
In Cars 3, Parker competes in the 2016 Piston Cup season against the likes of Lightning McQueen, Bobby Swift, Cal Weathers, and many others. He finishes in ninth place at Rocker Arms International. After Jackson Storm's win at the Copper Canyon Speedway sparks interest in next-generation racers, the N2O Cola team fires Parker and replaces him with a next-generation rookie racer named H.J. Hollis.
- Several die-cast cardbacks refer to him as Harvey Rodcap, which is actually the name of the next-generation Easy Idle racer.
