Radiator Springs Grand Prix is the first event and road race in Cars: The Video Game. This race does not actually occur, instead taking place within Lightning McQueen's dream.


The track starts on Main Street, with the contestants facing the courthouse. The racers turn right at Stanley's statue, and proceed to make another right, leading them alongside the fence of Sarge's Compound. The contestants drive straight until they reach a right turn which takes them through the Radiator Springs Drive-In Theatre. Once they exit, they make another right onto Main Street, and back to the finish line.

In story mode, the player controls Lightning McQueen. The opposing racers include Doc Hudson, Sally Carrera, Ramone, and Fletcher.
