With Pixar’s Cars franchise, Disney has a natural tie-in to this year’s Daytona 500 on February 14th. The Mouse House has debuted a new set of Cars related toys and home decor. You’ll find it coming soon to a big box store near you.
One set we’re really excited about is the team up between Mattel and Nascar for some cool collectible die cast cards. For this series, classic Cars characters like Lightning McQueen, Jackson Storm, Mater, Luigi and Guido have been NASCAR-ified, and some of the most notable NASCAR drivers including Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon, William Byron, Ryan Blaney, Joey Logano, Daniel Suarez, Aric Almirola, and Kyle Busch have been transformed into die-cast.
You know you’ve made it as a Nascar driver when you have a character in the Pixar cars universe.
You’ll be able to pick these up soon at your local Walmart.
Whether you’re a rookie or a pro, Cars Week is the perfect chance to put your pedal to the metal and test the speed limits!
With these die cast cards inspired by your favorite real-life NASCAR drivers and iconic Disney and Pixar’s Cars characters, there is no telling how far you and your four-wheeled friends will go.
