Role in the film
Rich Mixon is one of the next-generation Piston Cup racers. He wears the number 36 and is sponsored by Tank Coat. He replaces Reb Meeker, the previous Tank Coat racer, after the race at the Los Angeles International Speedway, making his debut in the Florida 500. During that race, he is the first racer Cruz Ramirez imagines as a tractor.
Rich is a playable character in Cars 3: Driven to Win. Like most other characters, he is unlocked by winning a specific amount of skill checks.
- Rich's name is similar to that of Richard Nixon, the thirty-seventh president of the United States.
