"Mater" as the name of the tow truck in Cars

 Q: What is the significance, if any, of the name "Mater" as the name of the tow truck in Cars? Is it a reference to the "country" term for tomato?
Jim, Myersville, Maryland 

A [Dave Smith]: The name, Mater, was actually taken from the nickname of Douglas "Mater" Keever, a devoted fan at Lowe's Motor Speedway near Charlotte, North Carolina. Cars director John Lasseter met Mater, and was impressed by him, on a research trip for the film in 2001. Keever had received the nickname as a kid working with "tuh-maters" on his parents' farm.
