Slider Petrolski is one of the racers for the Sidewall Shine racing team, along with Zeb.
He is a Capitol Motors Verve XT that is painted yellow and black, with the number 74 painted in white on his doors and roof. He has the Sidewall Shine logo printed on his hood and trunk.
In Cars, Slider is seen racing at the Motor Speedway of the South, among thirty-five other competitors. When Chick Hicks causes a huge accident, Slider is one of the many involved, and suffers some minor damage, though he is still able to continue racing.
"Slider Petrolski's parents named him Slider after his uncle: famed dirt track racer Slide Powers, who graced the gritty, makeshift tracks of the late forties. Aspiring to his namesake, Slider started racing at an early age. He challenged postal trucks, taxis, delivery vans, and all varieties of unsuspecting pedestrian motorists. He even raced a police car, but only once."
