Quote To Tex: "You Tex, you've been good to me all these years. It's the least I can do."
To McQueen: "This ain't a one-man deal, kid. You need to wise up and get a good crew chief and a good team."

Strip "The King" Weathers is a race car in the film Cars. He is voiced by Richard Petty.

Role in the film

He is a champion race car. In the Piston Cup final he tied for first place with Lightning McQueen and Chick Hicks so a tie-breaking race was scheduled. He races for the team "Dinoco". The King attempts to offer McQueen a dime's worth of free advice, saying it is the crew, not the racer, that wins races, but Lightning was too distracted to pay attention. After Hicks rammed The King, causing him to crash, McQueen has a moment of conscience and is fearful Weathers will be doomed to the same fate as Doc Hudson; thus McQueen forfeits his victory to aid Weathers.

"The King" Strip Weathers, has seen it all. From his humble beginnings on the Piston Cup circuit, to the glitzy sponsorship and media attention he has today, this seven time Piston Cup Champion is the winningest racecar in all of Piston Cup history. After a spectacular crash, The King looked pretty beat up, but rest assured he was back on his tires in no time flat! When you've been racing and crashing as long as he has, you can handle a few scrapes and dents...He's loved every second of his racing career, but truth be told, The King is ready for a slower pace. He's looking forward to more time with his queen, Mrs. The King."[1]

Trivia

  • The King's design is based on Richard Petty's vehicle, a 1970 Plymouth Superbird with a 426 ci Hemi engine.
