- "Green Racer!"
- ―Green Racer's roll call
Minoru Uesugi (上杉 実 Uesugi Minoru) is Green Racer (グリーンレーサー Gurīn Rēsā) of the Carrangers. He is the oldest of the team, 24 years old (39 in Gokaiger), and a bungling salesman at Pegasus.
He once loses the bracelet portion of his Accel Changer (and thus the Green Racer powers) while practicing victory poses after a fight, though he quickly recovered it after beating YY Gonza, who found it by his brother's improvised grave and started using it on his tail. Minoru speaks with an Osakan accent and is a fan of the Hanshin Tigers baseball team. He also used to be afraid of lightning since when he was a child, when he was shocked by an electric eel, but managed to overcome this fear in order to help his team defeat Elekinta.

Video game appearances
Gekisou Sentai Carranger: Zenkai! Racer Senshi
Minoru as Green Racer appears with his team in the video game Gekisou Sentai Carranger: Zenkai! Racer Senshi. The RV Mechas have been dismantled and their parts scattered all around, so it is up to the Carrangers to collect all the parts required to rebuild them, all the while fighting the Bowzock gang. The parts appear in the form of cogs and gears, and can only be obtained by striking various objects and killing off Wumpers along the way, among other forms (finding and getting an engine, for example, will give off ten parts). Each Mecha requires 50 parts to be rebuilt.
There are two possible endings depending on whether or not all five mecha were rebuilt. If they are, then the "good" ending is triggered. After Gynamo grows huge, RV Robo is formed and proceeds to battle Gynamo in the middle of the city. RV Robo than defeats Gynamo once and for all. If not, the "bad" ending will be triggered instead, where the Carranger are unable to form RV Robo. With no one to stop him, the Bowzock destroy Earth.

The Green Racer Ranger Key (グリーンレーサーレンジャーキー Gurīn Rēsā Renjā Kī) is Minoru Uesugi's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.
This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The Green Racer Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as Green Racer.
The Carranger keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. The Carranger keys were defeated by Super Gosei Pink. Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle
