Tow, sometimes referred to as Race Tow Truck Tom, is a minor character in Cars.


"As the official tow rig of the Piston Cup circuit, Tow has pulled his share of battered, weeping champions off the track. He's seen the top racers in their lowest moments, but he always respects their privacy."[1]

In the film, Tow is seen at the Motor Speedway of the South among several other tow trucks with the same model and color. He later appears towing Chuck Armstrong off the field after the gigantic crash caused by Chick Hicks.
