In the specials featuring the drivers, Blaze – a high-octane race car – visits the racing town of VelocityVille, where all the cars love to go fast, and meets new race cars: Dash (Johnson), a car that is fun, friendly, fast and the ultimate racing buddy for Blaze; Mark Set-Go (Elliott), VelocityVille’s sensational starter who kicks off each racing adventure with rock-star style and a signature rhyme; and Fender (Kahne), a car that rules the raceway, but is excited to share the track with Blaze.
