Cars: The Video GameEdit

Banks appears in Piston Cup Races, and normally places 17th in all five races. Like all 18 generic Piston Cup Cars, he is not playable.

Cars: Mater-National ChampionshipEdit

None of the Piston Cup NPCs returned, but there are mods that make Banks appear in the game as a playable character.


Banks is blue and black with the number 34 (sometimes 33) on his doors, light stickers, and roof. He is sponsored by Mood Springs.


Trivia Edit

  • Banks is a clone of Joltsen.
  • Banks, Cortland, and Suregrip are the only Piston Cup Racers whose color varies depending on the version of the game. Banks' body becomes darker on the Wii and Xbox 360.
  • Banks is the only Piston Cup Car to have dirt around his front bumper.
  • Banks and Riley are the only cars to have identical rim colors on the Wii version of the game. (other than black)
  • On the Xbox 360 version of the game, due to the number changes, McCoy loses the title of having the lowest number of any non-playable Piston Cup Car, and that title is given to Banks.
  • If done correctly, player influence can allow Banks to come in first In a single-player race, he however will sometimes be faster in a two-player race. These and mods that make him faster are the only three ways his name and status icon can be unveiled.
