This ain't a one-man deal, kid. You need to wise up and get yourself a good crew chief and a good team. You ain't gonna win unless you got good folks behind you, like I tell the other cars at the body shop.
~ The King telling McQueen to not be selfish and get a good crew.
What are you doing, kid? (Lightning McQueen: I think the King needs to finish his last race.) You just gave up the Piston Cup, you know that? (Lightning McQueen: Ha! This grumpy old race car I know once told me somethin'. It's just an empty cup).
~ King when Lightning pushing him to the finish line after Chick crashed him.

Strip "The King" Weathers is a recurring character in the Disney/Pixar Cars franchise. He is a major character in Cars and a cameo character in Cars 3. He is a veteran racer who possessed the Dinoco sponsorship for over twenty years and was planning to retire after the Piston Cup.

He was voiced by Richard Petty.

Personality

The King is shown to be kind and caring and a devoted husband to his wife Lynda. He is also an honorable racer and would never resort to cheating. He is also shown to be a good mentor to Lightning McQueen as he taught him not to think about himself and get a good crew to help him.

History

Cars

The King is first seen racing in Motor Speedway of the South with Lightning McQueen and Chick Hicks and finishes the race in a tie between McQueen and Chick. As a result of the 3 way tie, the Tie Breaker race is scheduled to be held in California between the 3 racers. The King says to McQueen that he's got great racing talent but he's stupid and also advises him not to be selfish and get himself a good team to support him.

Later on, he shows up to California to finish the tie-breaker race, along with McQueen and Chick. On the final lap, he gets sideswiped by Chick who refused to come behind him again and it causes him to fly and crash and roll a few times before coming to a hault which shocks his fans, his wife, Tex Dinoco, Doc Hudson, and eventually McQueen who sees this, comes to a hault, inches away from the finish line, which causes Chick to win. McQueen reverses and pushes the King to help him finish his last race, coming in second place. He told Lightning that he gave up the Piston Cup not until Mcqueen revealed to the King that this grumpy old race car told him that it's just an empty cup. He is then taken to the pit-stop area where his wife Lynda kisses McQueen, thanking him for his selfless act.

The King (now repaired) and Lynda later visit Radiator Springs and tour the museum where Mater shows them the Doc Hudson wing.

Cars 3

He reappears in the third film where he is now serving as his nephew, Cal Weathers' crew chief who later retires from racing.
