Yellow, black, white
Piston Cup Racer (former)
Claude is a Husker Morroco, a model that resembles a 1980 Buick Regal that is almost the same as a 1987 Buick Grand National but with a wider front bumper. He is painted yellow with white and black on his body. On his hood, he has the Leak Less logo inside a black stripe. He has white doors with black dots and the number 52. He also has a black spoiler, yellow rims and clear headlights. His max speed is 298 km/h (185.169 mph) and his horsepower is 580.
In Cars, Claude is seen in the big race at the Motor Speedway of the South. After Chick Hicks causes a huge accident between the majority of the competitors, a bruised Claude is out of control but stops in front of Billy Oilchanger, another car in a similar condition. However, Billy is quickly hit by another car and Claude turns to see Todd Marcus coming his way and Claude finds himself atop Todd's roof. When Lightning McQueen makes it through the mess, he bounces off of Claude, who looks severely damaged and bruised, and impresses fans by making and landing a large jump. Claude somehow manages to continue racing.
Sometime between the events of Cars and Cars 3, Claude retired, and was replaced by Brian Spark.
In comics, Claude Scruggs is one of Lightning's good friends, like Aiken Axler .
Profiles and statistics
- "Some would say that Leakless Adult Dripping Pans is not a prestigious sponsor, but Claude Scruggs would disagree, he's been the #52 yellow, black and white for more than two decades and he wears the Leakless logo with pride. His fan base might be a bit older but thanks to the automotive boom of the late 1940s there are a lot of them and their enthusiasm for the sport and for Scruggs is so intense they can barely contain themselves."
