During the 10-minute show, guests will be taking on the role of rookie racer as they enter the theater and find themselves face-to-face with Lightning McQueen, who appears live on stage. With the entire audience will be enveloped by a giant, wrap-around screen that is nearly two stories tall and stretches more than 200 feet from end to end, pulling everyone into the action!
Lightning is anxious to showcase what he’s learned over the years. But, things don’t always go according to plan when Chick Hicks hacks into the simulator system to humiliate him, and he has to think fast to get back on course. Friends like Mater, Cruz Ramirez and Lightning’s pals from Radiator Springs chime in with their support, as Lightning gears up for a challenge to finally settle the score with Chicks in a virtual race.
In the courtyard outside the attraction, guests can meet Cruz Ramirez and join DJ's Dance Party, relocated from Cars Land.
The show presumably takes place sometime after Cars 3.
Chick Hicks proclaims himself to be "the greatest racer of all time" because he won a Piston Cup in the first movie, even though his championship was a fluke since he got booed by his fans for his dirty actions.
When Chick Hicks summons clones to take out McQueen in a virtual race, this is a reference to Chick Hicks Takedown, a level in the Cars 3 tie-in game, Cars 3: Driven to Win where the player must take out thousands of Chick Hicks clones.
