    Is there anybody else out there but me that thinks the wreckers should have been voiced by their NASCAR counterparts?

    EX: Leadfoot---Juan Pablo Montoya
    Roadbuster---Dale Jr.
    Topspin(even though nobody voiced him)---Jimmie Johnson

    Nah, only because I prefer their English/Scottish accents.

    Or at least given accents that made sense. Why Scottish

    Because the Wreckers got their start in the Marvel UK comics. I thought it was a great nod to the history of the unit.

    They totally should have used some Demoman references for one of them.

    For people in the UK or those that are very familiar with accents/dialects, I could only pick up RB's Scottish accent (having a Scottish journalism professor in college helped me recognize it). What were the others?

    Leadfoot has an English accent, I think Topspin does also but I'm not 100 percent on that.

    They used John Dimaggio for Leadfoot the amazing voice behind Bender and Marcus Fenix. That alone makes the wreckers waaay better than if they were voiced by their Nascar driver counterparts.

    Also Topspin doesn't talk, he isn't in the credits.

    If this happened, they could have turned out to be annoying nascar fan stereotype's.

    It surprised me that they used English & Scottish accents for The Wreckers (although I'd forgotten their origins, which make it far more understandable). NASCAR is something I associate far more with America - stock car racing is managed by a different body here in the UK.

    I highly doubt those Racers are qualified (voice) actors.

    I thought Dale Jr. voiced his car in the movie Cars?

    Did Topspin even talk at all? I don't remember him saying anything and I was disappointed.
