Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” started hitting the road back in March with its “Road to the Races,” a nationwide tour inviting fans of #95 to gear up for the upcoming big-screen release. Life-size, character look-alikes of five-time Piston-Cup champion Lightning McQueen, tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez and the sleek next-gen racer Jackson Storm will be rolling into 27 cities coast to coast to celebrate the new movie, which opens June 16, 2017.
The roster of cities includes Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Denver and Los Angeles, among others—the full list is available at CARS3tour.com. The “Road to the Races” nationwide tour wraps up in California with a visit to NASCAR at Sonoma 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.
This past weekend, NYC revved into high gear as it hosted the festivities in Queens at The Shops at Atlas Park in Glendale. It was a vibrant and fun day as visitors not only took a glance at the life-sized character cars, but shot photos, videos, and enjoyed surrounding activities in the name of a franchise that’s had the magical ability to speed away with the minds, bodies, and souls of those who are just taken by the unique awesomeness that is CARS!
