Strip Weathers (or called in the games, and referred to as The King by most characters) is a playable character in Cars: The Video Game. He is a seven-time Piston Cup champion who retired the season before the events of the game, after having suffered a similar wreck to what ended Doc Hudson's career, but this time caused by Chick Hicks.

Parents: Mrs. The King (mother), Miss Fritter (grandmother)Edit

Siblings: Luigi & Guido (brothers)

Arcade/VS ModeEdit

King is one of the five playable characters that can be selected for use in Piston Cup Races, once purchased for 12,000 bonus points. He is however, only playable in Piston Cup Races.

Cars: Mater-National ChampionshipEdit

The King does not actually appear in the game, but there are mods that add him to the game as a playable character.

Livery Edit

King is blue with the number 43, sponsored by Dinoco Fuel.

Personality Edit

King is easily seen as a mentor similar to Doc, but is not as grumpy. He still may easily go as far as to call inferior cars stupid.

Abilities Edit

King easily excels compared to almost every other car he faces, and has won seven Piston Cups, but may also be noted of being light and easy to toss in the air with a PIT maneuver, though this never happens in the games (although it does happen to even lighter cars such as Gerald).


  • Speed: 5
  • Acceleration: 3
  • Handling: 4
  • Stability: 3

Paint JobsEdit



  • King's physics are unbalanced, meaning he cannot perform as well as other cars can, for example, on Motor Speedway of the South, King cannot perform a lap in under 43 seconds, while Lightning and Doc can do laps in 40 seconds.
  • King is the only car to have their number written on both of their headlight and both of their taillight locations.
