According to an interview USA Today recently conducted with director, Brian Fee, the Cars 3 plot will center around an older Lightning McQueen training to race in the Daytona 500. We now know that two new lead characters will be introduced: Cruz Ramirez, Lightning’s younger trainer and Jackson Storm, a rookie racer that leads a group of upstarts looking to push old-timers like Lightning into retirement. Owen Wilson will return for a third time in the lead role. Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt and Cheech Marin also return in their iconic supporting roles. No news so far as to who will be voicing Ramirez or Storm.
