Piston Cup racer
Ernie Gearson races for the Spare Mint team in the Piston Cup Racing Series. He is a Husker Morraco, like many other Piston Cup racers. He is painted light blue, with a green stripe wrapped around his doors and hood. He has the Spare Mint logo on his hood, as well as the number 93 painted in white on his doors and roof.
In Cars, Ernie competes in the Dinoco 400 at the Motor Speedway of the South, but he runs into trouble when Chick Hicks causes an accident involving the majority of the race's competitors. Though Gearson receives some minor damage, he is able to continue racing.
Gearson returns in Cars 3, competing in the 2017 Piston Cup season.
Profiles and statistics
- "Ernie Gearson recalls the day when high dollar sponsorships and squealing fans were still a thing of the future. He may be one of the oldest racers on the grids these days, but he's been around the track once or twice. He's still got plenty of fire in his chambers. His friends call him "Giddyup," alluding to the humble 300 horsepower engine he started his career with all those years ago."
