Todd Marcus is a Piston Cup racer in the Cars series. He is one of two racers for the No Stall team, along with Jonas Carvers.
In Cars, Todd is one of thirty-six Piston Cup racers that compete for the Piston Cup trophy in the Dinoco 400 at the Motor Speedway of the South. Marcus is performing decently up until Chick Hicks creates a large accident between all competitors besides himself, Lightning McQueen, and Strip Weathers. During the wreck, Todd hits Ernie Gearson before spinning out of control and bumping into Claude Scruggs, and the two find themselves roof-to-roof. Though Todd suffers some physical damage, he is still able to race, and returns to the fray after a pit stop, finishing the race in the middle of the pack.
