In Cars, James is one of the thirty-six race cars that is competing in the Dinoco 400, the final race of the 2005 Piston Cup season, at the Motor Speedway of the South. However, James ends up receiving damage after being involved in a large wreck created by Chick Hicks, in an attempt to distance himself from Lightning McQueen. During said wreck, he collided with Haul Inngas and Billy Oilchanger. Despite his injuries, James continues racing.

One year after the events of Cars, James retires with Brick Yardley becoming the Vitoline racer and given 24 as a new team number.

Sponsoring a race car seemed like a good way to get that message across to their costumers and they hired the right car for the job!
