Piston Cup Cameraman
|Friends & Family|
Bernie Banks is a character in Cars.
Bernie is a notorious Piston Cup photographer known for sacrificing anything, including his own body, to get a great shot. In last year's No Grime 500, he was mid-shot when he was t-boned by an untamed racer, Buck Schooner. It cost Bernie two and a half months in the body shop, but scored him an incredible shot of Chick Hicks and the August cover of "Runner Up Monthly".
Bernie is painted brown, with gray rims and clear headlights. He has a large camera attached to his doors.
Bernie is an Axxelo Turnpike LX.
