The race starts out on the road next to Sarge's Compound, and then racers will make a right and drive straight into it. After jumping over a large amount of cacti, the competitors must navigate through a series of sharp and narrow turns, until the track eventually leads into the trench under the stone bridge. Unlike in Cars: The Video Game, there are now small sections of water in the trench, and racers must jump over them, or they will slow down upon making contact with one. The racers then must drive past a waterfall, and past Willy's Butte. After a few turns, the racers will drive on a straight road through Sarge's Boot Camp, while avoiding tornadoes that will spin a racer if contact is made. Once out of the compound, the racers return to the finish line.
During the first cutscene, Otto tells Lightning and Sheriff that he races in "Le Cars". This is a parody of Le Mans, which is known for hosting twenty-four hour endurance races, something Otto also mentions.
Red makes a cameo appearance on top of the canyon shooting water from his hose into one of the ponds, to form the waterfall.
