Rustbucket Race 1 is the first of four Rustbucket Races in Cars: Mater-National Championship.
Story Mode Edit
The event has a cut scene, where Mater sees Tommy Joe, Lewis, Judd, Cletus, Buford, and Zeke sitting altogether, when they should be getting ready for a race later tonight. Only Tommy Joe has the nerve to back up and says it's because the other five cousins are in love with Emma. As Emma turns over, Mater says to "act natural", and all but Tommy Joe spring into action and trample Mater. Emma drives up and says "They're off their rocker bars!".
The track is an extremely simple "peanut" shape, with a few crates and oil cans littered around.
Award Info Edit
8 Bolt Banners are the reward for victory, and any later victories award 8000 points.
