DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Chase Elliott can still remember going to see the very first "Cars" movie.
Now, he's featured in the third installment of the Disney Pixar franchise.
Elliott voices second-generation Piston Cup racer Chase Racelott in the upcoming “Cars 3.” Racelott’s blend of skills, track smarts and top-of-the-line technology make this rookie a real contender.
“‘Cars 3’ very much pays homage to stock car racing and its rich history,” director Brian Fee said. “Our story leans into the drama, emotion and excitement NASCAR fans find at every race.”
