Lightning's friends are named Bobby Swift and Cal Weathers, which seem to be a nod to Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton, Jr. from Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006), which was released in the same year that Cars (2006) came out. Cal Weathers' name is also a nod to actor Carl Weathers who played Apollo Creed in the first four "Rocky" movies, and also provided the voice of Combat Carl in Toy Story of Terror (2013). The training scene on Fireball Beach between Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez is a tribute to the beach training scene in Rocky III (1982) between Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed. See more »
At Thunder Hollow, Cruz (under the name Frances Beltline) has the number #20 sprayed on her right side. When we see her during the talk with Smokey and the other veterans, it is now on her right side. Later she has it spray-painted on both sides when practicing with McQueen (in order to substitute for Jackson Storm, who's racing number is also #20) but this is after McQueen talks to Smokey.

Storm's in a class of his own. And a big reason for that: training on the newest cutting edge simulators. These machines create a virtual racing experience so real racers never even have to go outside.

The 3D version bears a different version of the Pixar logo than the 2D version, with the Pixar lamp hopping toward the camera instead of coming in from the right side. See more »
The first Cars movie is a classic that will be enjoyed for a long time to come. Cars 3 a has a few major problems. - We don't want to live in or know about whatever 'new reality' this movie has created, where Lightning isn't the fastest car anymore. We especially don't want to know that there is an entire new generation of cars that are faster than him. How depressing is that. - The movie has very little of the heart, soul, and humor of the original. It has a very different feel, with the 'next gen' cars speaking and acting like spoilt millennials. Jackson Storm is a nasty piece of work. - If feels like the point of the movie is to reinforce that 'girls can do anything' (like most movies these days). That's all well and good, but it's not what we paid money to actually go and see. We want to watch a movie about the movie's actual hero and main character, Lightning Mcqueen. And we want to see him win and NOT be depressed, old and slow most of the time.
