Piston Cup race car (former)
Terry competes in the 2017 Piston Cup season in Cars 3. However, as Jackson Storm sparks interest in next generation racers, Terry either retires or gets fired by Triple Dent and gets replaced by a next-generation racer named Cam Spinner.
- Early concept art of Terry shows that he was going to have the number 21. But it changed to number 31, because of Ryan "Inside" Laney. Ryan Laney's voice actor, Ryan Blaney, who is a professional NASCAR driver, bears and sports the number 21 in real life. Ryan decided which team he will be in. Instead of Triple Dent he chose Blinkr. Because of Ryan choosing and racing for team Blinkr, Terry Kargas' number changed to 31, and Cam Spinner became the next-gen Triple Dent racer.
- Terry has the same body as Brick Yardley in the film, but his diecast uses that of Cal Weathers. This was corrected for the 2019 re-release.
