Smokin' Sammy Smelter is a race car who was given a sponsorship by Smell Swell. Lightning McQueen was fired and replaced by Smelter. Next he was sponsored by Rust-eze but had an accident and was replaced by McQueen.
Smelter is mentioned in World of Cars, in the story, And Now a Word From Our Sponsor. McQueen's sponsor informs him that he is being dropped in favor of a young hotshot named Sammy Smelter. Lightning protests, saying Smelter's racing stinks, but Smell Swell responds by saying that is precisely why they chose him - he fits Smell Swell's image better. Lightning McQueen was given a sponsorship by Rust-eze.
Sammy also appears physically in the Boom! Studios Comics series. He is depicted with a red and green coat of paint, and the racing number 01.
