NASCAR drivers join Cars 3 casting

With Cars 3 set to hit cinemas this summer, figures in the NASCAR industry are getting their very own animated role.

Daniel Suarez, Ryan Blaney, Darrell Wallace Jr. and Daytona 500 pole winner Chase Elliott will all make an appearance in the next instalment for the franchise, alongside familiar voices Darrell Waltrip, Jeff Gordon and Richard Petty, who will return in the new film.

“It’s amazing. I’m a huge fan of Cars movies in general," said Suarez.

"When I was living in Mexico with my parents, it was natural to watch those movies and have all different kind of little cars, pillows, remote controls – I’m a big fan of it, and now to be a part of it, it’s a big deal for me."

NASCAR’s inclusion with the franchise will also expand to at-track appearances, merchandise and co-branded learning materials for school students through the NASCAR Acceleration Nation youth program.
