  • Ryan Laney is a pun from his US voice actor's name, Ryan Blaney, who is a professional NASCAR racer.
  • During the Florida 500 crash, Ryan's paintjob suddenly reversed to blue with orange stripes instead of orange with blue stripes. This miscolored version of Ryan is often mistakenly identified as Michael Rotor.
  • In the Florida 500, after the crash, he is seen ok, entering his pit, but then disappears for the rest of the race, and finally reappears to congratulate Cruz.
  • Among the four next-generation racers who are based off of real race car drivers, Ryan is the only one whose sponsor did not appear in the first film.
  • In the movie, Ryan didn't have any text on his spoiler, only the little Blinkr symbol, but on his diecast, he has Blinkr written on his spoiler as well.
