|Race Official Tom|
Piston Cup Race Official
Race Official Tom is a male Remirunabout Orbit who works as a race official for the Piston Cup Racing Series. Despite his authoritative position, Tom enjoys a good laugh, and occasionally pulls pranks while working.
In Cars, after Lightning McQueen, Chick Hicks, and Strip Weathers finish the Dinoco 400 at the exact same time, Tom and other race officials continually rewind the tapes in an attempt to determine a winner. They are unable to, and a tie-breaker race is set to be held at the Los Angeles International Speedway to determine the 2005 champion.
Profiles and statistics
- "Tom is a Piston Cup official, but that doesn't mean he's not a fun guy. Sure rules and regulations are important to him, but he also enjoys a good joke or fun prank now and then. He once switched the signs on entrance C-44 of the stadium with C-45 to temporarily confuse his fellow race officials. The prank went over like gangbusters and everybody had a good laugh...except for Tom, who felt guilty and reported the incident to his superior."
