Aiken Axler is a minor character in Cars. He races for the team "Nitroade." He is a Lux Motors Co. Piston Cup V8 that likes to meditate.


"Number 28 Nitroade racer, Aiken Axler, captured the 2003 Vitoline Rookie of the Year honors in his first full season of Cup competition. He's finished 12th, 7th, and 8th in the final point standings over the past three years. Off the track, Axler enjoys maintaining his top racing form by exercising daily and practicing a form of meditation called Tai Rod. He and fellow Piston Cup Racer, Darrel Draggered, formed the alternative country jazz trio "Three Cycle" and performed at the 2004 Piston Cup awards ceremony!"[1]



  • As one of the two cars recreated for Walt Disney World's Piston Cup Junior Ride-Along program for the Richard Petty Driving Experience, Aiken received a significant paint overhaul with more white and orange.
