Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, 42 losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast. Wait, maybe I should have had breakfast. A little breck-y could be good for me. No, no, no, stay focused. Speed. I’m faster than fast. Quicker than quick.
I am lightning! Hey, Lightning! You ready? Oh, yeah. Lightning’s ready. Get your antenna balls here! Go, Lightnin’! You got that right, slick. Welcome back to the Dinoco 400. I’m Bob Cutlass, here with my good friend, Darrell Cartrip. We’re midway through what may be an historic day for racing. Bob, my oil pressure through the roof. If this gets more exciting, they’re gonna have to tow me outta the booth! Right you are, Darrell. Three cars are tied for the season points lead, heading into the final race of the season.And the winner of this race will win the season title and the Piston Cup. Does The King, Strip Weathers, have one more victory in him before retirement? He’s been Dinoco’s golden boy for years! Can he win them one last Piston Cup? And, as always, in the second place spot we find Chick Hicks. He’s been chasing that tailfin his entire career. Chick thought this was his year, Bob. His chance to finally emerge from The King’s shadow. But the last thing he expected was… But the last thing he expected was… …Lightning McQueen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know, I don’t think anybody expected this. You know,I don’t think anybody expected this. The rookie sensation came into the season unknown. But everyone knows him now. Will he be the first rookie to win a Piston Cup and land Dinoco? The legend, the runner-up, and the rookie! Three cars, one champion! No, you don’t. What a ride! Go get ’em, McQueen! Go get ’em! I love you, Lightning! Dinoco is all mine. Trouble, turn three! – Get through that, McQueen. – A huge crash behind the leaders! Wait a second, Darrell. McQueen is in the wreckage. There’s no way the rookie can make it through! Not in one piece, that is. Yeah! Lightning! Look at that! McQueen made it through! Man, a spectacular move by Lightning McQueen! Yeah! Ka-chow! McQueen! McQueen! McQueen! McQueen! McQueen! McQueen! Yeah, McQueen!Ka-chow! While everyone else heads into the pits, McQueen stays out to take the lead! Don’t take me out, coach. I can still race! What do you think? A thing of beauty. -McQueen made it through! – What? He’s not pitting! You gotta get me out there! Let’s go! Get me back out there! McQueen’s not going into the pits! The rookie just fired his crew chief. That’s the third one this season! – He says he likes working alone. – Go, go, go! Looks like Chick got caught up in the pits. Yeah, after a stop like that, he’s got a lot of ground to make up. Get ready, boys,we’re coming to the restart! Come on, come on, come on! We need tires now! Come on, let’s go! – No, no, no, no! No tires, just gas! – What? You need tires, you idiot! Looks like it’s allgas-and-go’s for McQueen today. That’s right. No tires again. That’s a short-term gain, long-term loss, but it’s sure workin’ for him. He obviously knows somethin’ we don’t know. This is it,Darrell. One lap to go and Lightning McQueen has a huge lead. He’s got it in the bag. Call in thedogs and put out the fire! We’re gonna crown us a new champion! Checkered flag, here I come!
