Cars 3, the Disney/Pixar movies, is scheduled to hit theaters on June 16. According to the plot summary, as written by Pixar:
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 with her own plan to win, 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!
As amazing as that sounds, there’s even something more amazing — the bevy of NASCAR personalities and legends who have a role in the film. According to Fox Sports, you can expect to hear all of those voices, and more:
He’ll play a quick learner who’s determined in Danny Swervez.
