He later appears in Stinger's Stir Up, where Chick introduces him to Lightning McQueen and Ramone. Lightning asked how he was doing, but Stinger just revved his engine. Later, in the end-scene, Chick gets mad at him and calls him a steel brain of a worthless bucket of bolts. Then he asked, "What do you have to say for yourself?" But Stinger didn't say anything. Instead, he just drove away.
He later appears in Reunion Rundown. In Chick Hicks Showdown, he also apologizes to Lightning for being mean to him, and Lightning invites him to come to the Doc Hudson Racing Academy anytime. Candice asked him to say thank you to Lightning, but instead, he revs his engine. That could be his way of apologizing.
