Varoom! Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, and Jackson Storm are touring the country on their way to the premier of Disney Pixar Cars 3 on June 16th,2017. This “Road to the Races Tour” spent the weekend in New York City, and despite the Storm-y weather, was a win for little and big, old-gen and new-gen racers alike.
A series of character and interactive experiences line the “course.”
Coppertone gets the racer pit-crew in top form with their tire-changing activity.
All leading to the finish line; a preview of the movie and interview with Disney Pixar’s John Lasseter!!
If you have a #95 fan at home, or know a little one that is obsessed with wheels (like all boys in my family were/are!) check out the remainder of the Cars 3 Road to the Races Tour at CARS3tour.com.
The nationwide tour wraps up in California with a visit to NASCAR at the Sonoma Raceway June 24-25, 2017, and the life-size character cars will also roll onto the red carpet for the Cars 3 world premiere on Saturday, June 10, 2017.
ABOUT THE MOVIE:
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.
Top PT Tip:
Cars 3 Road to the Races Tour is widely popular, and gets crowded and perhaps intense for little ones and/or those with sensory concerns. Because of my professional and personal experience with autism, I can verify that many individuals on the spectrum have a special hyper-attention to and with wheels. They will perhaps have a special affinity to the Cars franchise of movies. I would suggest arriving in your city’s event early (if your child cannot tolerate waiting in lone, have a family member be place holder), bring headphones (if applicable) for the tire-changing activity, movie preview, and crowd background noise, and other sensory-appeasers as your child requires. These venues will get crowded as the days progresses, so be prepared accordingly. The special needs families I met in New York City were thrilled that Cars 3 Road to the Races had come to our town!
