During the race at the Motor Speedway of the South, Floyd is passed by Lightning McQueen by using a tilt technique to squeeze through the space between Floyd and the wall. Floyd is later involved in the accident caused by Chick Hicks, during which he is hit by Slider Petrolski.
Floyd returns in Cars 3, competing in the 2016 Piston Cup Season. But when the next-generation rookie racers begin performing much better than the veteran racers, Gasprin fires Floyd and replaces him with a next-generation racer named Richie Gunzit.

"Floyd Mulvihill, originally trained as an automotive engineer, decided to put down his tools and pursue his life-long passion to race. He competed in the Junior Piston Cup Pro Series with the likes of Sage VanDerSpin and graduated to the Piston Cup in 2005. He's affectionately known as "Smoky Floyd" as he enjoys laying long patches of burning rubber in front of his adoring fans during a race in 2005."
- In a Duracell commercial promoting Cars 3, Lightning McQueen passes Floyd using the tilt technique similar to how he did in the first film.
- From Cars to Cars 3, Floyd's design differs a bit. In Cars and The World of Cars Online, Floyd is a boxy Stodgey, but in Cars 3, his design is closer to that of an Axxelo Fission or a Capitol Motors Mark II.
