Summer Road Trip
You don't have to suit up and strap in for a road trip this summer: just hightail it to your local theater.

Thanks to the good folks at Pixar, you won’t have to go farther than the nearest multiplex to take a summer road trip. Lightning McQueen and some 140 new car-acters are geared up to hit the road, when Cars 2 races into theaters on June 24. As always, Pixar’s digital wizards will throw in some East Bay shout-outs. NASCAR champ and Vallejo native Jeff Gordon voices a car named Jeff Gorvette. And Guido Quaroni reprises his role as Guido from the original film. Quaroni, a supervising technical director at the Emeryville studio, originally provided a test voice for Guido before an actual actor was cast. Director John Lasseter liked his voice so much, he left it in the film.
