Ernie Gearson is the Piston Cup race car for the Spare Mint team.
He is a Husker Morraco, like several of his other fellow Piston Cup racers. He is painted light blue, with a green stripe wrapped around his doors and hood. He has the Spare Mint logo on his hood, as well as the number 93 painted in white on his doors and roof.
In Cars, Ernie is one of the competitors that is racing in the final Piston Cup race of the season at the Motor Speedway of the South. He is later involved in the huge wreck between all of the racers except for Lightning, Chick and The King.
"Ernie Gearson recalls the day when high dollar sponsorships and squealing fans were still a thing of the future. He may be one of the oldest racers on the grids these days, but he's been around the track once or twice. He's still got plenty of fire in his chambers. His friends call him "Giddyup," alluding to the humble 300 horsepower engine he started his career with all those years ago."
