Who are the biggest Piston Cup record holders? Fans theorize

Discover which ‘Cars’ competitors and teams achieved records in the most prestigious championship in this universe: the Piston Cup!

One of Pixar’s greatest titles is ‘Cars’, a film released in 2006 that features Lightning McQueen, a racing car with a high ego who ends up getting lost while heading to an important competition and stops in Radiator Springs, a small town on Route 66, where he will know the value of friendship and love, as well as learning that winning is not the only thing that matters.

The success of the film was so great that it gave rise to a successful franchise, where the popular red car appears in two more sequels released in 2011 and 2017, becoming a powerful name, as it achieved a record never surpassed in the biggest and most important automobile championship: the Piston Cup.

Before revealing the brand obtained by McQueen, it is necessary to understand that the Piston Cup is an American stock car racing championship, which emerged in 1940 with dirt track circuits, but which, over the years, underwent changes and today it only covers competitors willing to race on asphalt.

Thus, McQueen, who was in the competition between 2006 and 2016, secured seven golden trophies, becoming the competitor with the most victories among all editions!

Although much information about the championship remains secret from Pixar, fans of the franchise dedicated themselves to finding out who the characters are who, like the main star of the films, achieved important records in the Piston Cup, and gathered the main information through a thread on X (formerly Twitter).

This happened in 2022, when the user @lucasksio researched, through fan communities, who were the competitors who won the most races, which teams had the most titles, and more.
