Chick Hicks is the main antagonist in Cars. He is voiced by Michael Keaton.


Hicks is in a three-way tie with The King and Lightning McQueen and is attempting to win the Piston Cup. His nickname is The Runner-Up as he seems to always lose to The King. He also has the reputation of not racing fairly, being perfectly willing to cheat in order to win or at least make second place. With The King's oncoming retirement, he is determined to get Dinoco's sponsorship and the glory that comes with it. In McQueen's nightmares, he wins the Piston Cup and Dinoco.

Chick's primary sponsor is the Hostile Takeover Bank (htB). His car number is 86.

In the championship Piston Cup, Chick ties with The King and Lightning, forcing the three racers to compete in a tiebreaker race. While mocking Lightning, Lightning retaliates by nicknaming him "Thunder", as thunder always comes after lightning, much to Chick's intense annoyance. However, he later shows off with this new nickname after Lightning disappears in Radiator Springs, wooing his fans and stealing Lightning's. During the final race, he makes numerous attempts to force Lightning out of the race, only to be outrun by him in spite of it. During the final lap, he intentionally sideswipes The King, making him spin out of control and crash. When Lightning sees what has happened to The King, he stops before crossing the finish line and goes back to help The King across the line, allowing Chick to win first place and the Piston Cup. However, nobody cheers him on, instead cheering on Lightning for helping The King. The fans then turn on Chick, causing him to have to make a quick getaway with his trophy.

It is unknown what happens to Chick afterwards, but it appears that he has been denied the sponsorship by Dinoco, as Tex instead tries to offers it to Lightning for his good sportsmanship.
