I’m starting to think that the new Cars movie will be so jam packed with new characters there won’t be any time for anything else. Pixar has announced another new character as well as revealed the return of another.
NASCAR superstar Jeff Gordon will have a larger than cameo role voicing All-American racer Jeff Gorvette who is a genuine contender in the World Gran Prix.
“Jeff Gorvette is one of the greatest American racecars alive today. Donning the stars and stripes of his countryâ€™s flag, the #24 Corvette C6.R has proven his ability to succeed on the big ovals and the road courses of the Grand Touring Sports circuits. Having moved from his hometown of Vallejo, California to Indiana to be closer to the racing world, Gorvetteâ€™s ability to accelerate at such a young age has turned hoods wherever he competes. His championships and number of victories are unmatched, making him a respected competitor-and legitimate threat-at the World Grand Prix.”
Darrell Waltrip returns to reprise his role as race announcer Darrel Cartrip.
“Darrell Cartrip is a legendary multi-Piston Cup champion turned beloved racing announcer. The Kentucky-born #17 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is known for his wild color commentary, delighting Piston Cup fans with his humor, charisma and signature catch phrases-“Boogity, Boogity, Boogity! Letâ€™s go racinâ€™ boys!” Heâ€™s spent years on the track, in the pits and in the grease, and heâ€™ll tell you all about it. This American Southern gentleman knows what it takes to win, and plans to bring that fervent expertise to calling the World Grand Prix.”
