and other racers down the gravity drop and launches them into action in new

play sets that feature locations from the movie. Also on display will be a

Mack Trucks, Inc. will transport the life-size character cars on the coast-to-coast tour.


Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning

McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) 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 (voice of Cristela Alonzo), 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! Directed by Brian Fee

(storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“), produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La

Luna” short) and co-produced by Andrea Warren (“LAVA” short), “Cars 3” cruises

into theaters on June 16, 2017.


The roster of cities has included Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, New York,

Philadelphia, Denver and Los Angeles, among others—the full list is available at The life-size character cars also roll onto the red carpet for the

“Cars 3” world premiere on Saturday, June 10, 2017. The “Road to the Races”

nationwide tour wraps up in California with a visit to NASCAR at the Sonoma

Raceway June 24-25, 2017.
