Cars 3

The Thomasville Speedway is an abandoned Piston Cup race track where Cruz Ramirez helps train Lightning McQueen during his recovery after his nasty accident. According to the sign, it is also the once home of Doc Hudson, and likely also a track where he raced as part of his 3 Piston Cup-winning campaigns.


Doc met his fellow racers Louise Nash, Junior Moon and River Scott there. Smokey taught Doc how to race on the dirt roads here. Doc is also to have known to have flipped over another racer.
