Tractor Tipping is a minigame in Cars: The Video Game. It is based on a scene from Cars, in which Lightning McQueen and Mater go Tractor Tipping in Frank's field at night.


The goal of the game is to tip all Tractors within the given level, before time runs out. Tipping a tractor is accomplished by driving up to a tractor, and honking the car's horn. Additionally, players must avoid getting caught by Frank. Players will get caught if their Frank meter on the left side of the screen fills all the way up. The meter will increase if players spend time under searchlights, or if they get caught directly in Frank's headlights.
