SummaryAdd a Summary
Cars takes place in a world populated by anthropomorphic transportation. The film begins with the last race of the Piston Cup championship, which ends in a three-way tie between retiring veteran Strip "The King" Weathers, perennial runner-up Chick Hicks, and rookie Lightning McQueen. The tiebreaker race is scheduled for one week later at the Los Angeles International Speedway. Lightning is desperate to win the race, since it would allow him to leave the unglamorous sponsorship of Rust-Eze, a rust treatment for old cars, and allow him to take The King's place as the sponsored car of the lucrative Dinoco team. Eager to start practice in California as soon as possible, Lightning pushes his big rig, Mack, to travel all night long. While McQueen is sleeping, the exhausted Mack drifts off and is startled by a gang of reckless street racers, causing McQueen to fall out the back of the truck into the road. McQueen wakes in the middle of traffic, and speeds off the highway to find Mack, ending up in a run-down town of Radiator Springs and inadvertently ruining the pavement of its main road.
lightning mcqueen the latest sensation in racing is on his way to be the first rookie in history to win a piston cup but on his way he gets stuck in radiator springs being forced to fix the road he ruined and hates everyone for it he ends up loving the small town and help saving the town from being completely forgotten by the world

Other: (spoiler alert) something we seemed to miss all the time, is when Lightening asks if anyone knew Doc had 3 piston cups, Mater says in shock, "he did what in his cup?" Get it? i hope not. the Lord's name is briefly thrown out there once too.
