Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3 “Road to the Races” Nationwide Tour

Calling all racing fans! Cars 3 will be hitting the big screen on June 16th. To gear up for the next installment in the popular franchise, Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3 has hit the road with their “Road to the Races” tour.

The tour has been traveling around the country since March, and it may be heading to a city near you! Best of all, it is FREE to attend!

Cars 3

This summer, Lightning McQueen is returning to theaters in an all-new movie!  Here is a bit of the story from its creators:

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!

Road to the Races Tour

Leading up to the film’s release this summer, life-size characters from the movie are going on a national tour! They might be coming to a city near you! There will be photo ops with Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, and Jackson Storm!

If you have a Cars fan in your family, that should be incentive enough.  We’ve seen some of Jackson’s favorites at Walt Disney World’s Art of Animation resort, which is a very cool and free thing you can do if you’re in the neighborhood.

In addition to the characters, a few sponsors will be on hand with activities, as well.
