"Darren Leadfoot is the LAST guy you want drafting you on the final turn. Known for his sudden 11th hour accelerations, Darren's one car who won't let anything or anyone stand between him and the finish line!" 
Darren races for the team "Shiny Wax".
Darren returns in Cars 3, competing in the Piston Cup against the next-generation racers, who replace most of the other veterans over the course of the season. Eventually, after the Los Angeles 500, he himself gets replaced by a next-generation racer.
