A piece of HUD called a Position Tracker and the Icons used on them have been a recurring mechanic in the series.

Cars: The Video Game Edit

The tracker simpily displays the player's standing out of the total number of cars, and a lead meter showing how far ahead of the second place car they are if leading, or how far they are behind the leader. Icons are a simple blank-posed token of the car with a black outline.

Cars: Mater-National Championship Edit

The tracker displays the top three cars and an identical lead meter to the one from the first game. The player's current standing will replace third if they are in fourth or lower. The player is highlighted in orange, and opponents are highlighted in blue. Icons are highly similar, but now have a tan outline, and when viewed in the files, are much smaller.

Cars: Race-O-Rama Edit

The tracker now displays the current race time where the lead meter was shown, although now both other displayed cars now have lead meters, meaning that when the player is not in the top three, they can still see how far the leader is ahead of the car in second place. Icons are much like those from the previous game, but are larger and differently angled. It should be noted that the timers do not count every split second like the trackers in the first two games did, instead buffering every 30 milliseconds.

Cars 2: The Video Game Edit

The tracker has been majorly deproved. It now displays the player's car and the car that is one standing ahead and the car one standing behind them. There also is no longer a lead meter. Icons show the car taking a pose without an outline, although in the game in most versions, the tracker instead shows a front view of the car taking the exact pose they are currently taking in the actual race.
