Masterson (called Todd Marcus in Cars: Fast as Lightning) is a Piston Cup Racer in Cars: The Video Game.
Cars: The Video GameEdit
In story mode, Masterson is seen racing with the other Piston Cup cars in each of the five Piston Cup Races. In all five races, he normally places 13th.
You can't play as Masterson, but he will appear as an opponent in Piston Cup races.
Cars: Fast as Lightning Edit
Masterson appears as the first playable character, once the player completes his track, they unlock Chick Hicks.
In the first game, Masterson has a blank personality (and only has a voice in Los Angeles International Speedway, which Medford uses in all other races), but in Fast as Lightning, Masterson is depicted cheerful and light-hearted, one day dreaming of being a Piston Cup Champion like Lightning.
Masterson is shown trying to learn abilities from Lightning throughout the events of Fast as Lightning, but doesn't seem to have any he learned himself.
Paint Jobs Edit
In Cars: Fast as Lightning, Masterson has two alternate paint jobs called "Rookie Green" and "Golden Champion".
- In Cars: The Video Game, he is a clone of Joltsen.
- His number is 121 in Cars: The Video Game, but in the Xbox 360 Version and in Fast as Lightning, it is 123, a bio says he chose 123 since it is easy to remember.
- Masterson is one of four cars whose number font changes depending on which number he has, taking on the font of Suregrip's 121 when wearing that number.
- Masterson is mentioned by the announcer as "number 121", but due to the Xbox 360 number changes, Masterson will instead bear number 123 and fall unmentioned, the quotes will instead be directed at Suregrip, who is still also mentioned by name. Guenther also shares this in common.
- Although the common No Stall logo is orange (including the one on Masterson's trunk), Masterson is red.
- Masterson's grille is flipped upside down and made a bit smaller in Cars: Fast as Lightning, although in all versions of the first game, his grille remains the same, unlike Aikens and Bashman, whose grilles vary by version.
