CARS 2

Blue-collar comedian and the voice of Mater in the upcoming Disney-Pixar summer comedy “CARS 2,” Larry the Cable Guy will “git-r-done” as the honorary pace-car driver for the 52nd running of the Coca-Cola 600 on May 29 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The venue will celebrate the U.S. opening of Disney-Pixar’s “CARS 2″ on June 24 with a special display for fans featuring full-size replicas of movie stars Lightning McQueen and Mater, who will also participate in the pre-race parade laps.

“I am excited to Git R Done in the pace car at Charlotte Motor Speedway and lead the field to the start of NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600,” said Larry the Cable Guy. “It will be an honor to be a part of the most patriotic pre-race show in America.”

In May 2006, Charlotte Motor Speedway hosted the world premiere of Disney-Pixar’s “CARS,” which was the first multi-screen digital cinema premiere ever held. More than 35,000 fans watched the premiere on a series of four giant custom-built outdoor movie screens.

“We’re excited to once again work with Disney-Pixar and celebrate everything we love about cars, the summer and great NASCAR racing in Charlotte,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. “Having Larry the Cable Guy and these awesome ‘CARS 2′ vehicles is a super addition to the spectacle and pageantry of the Coca-Cola 600. It’s the perfect way to kick-off the summer for our fans, by pairing the biggest movie of the summer with NASCAR’s most spectacular event, all on Memorial Day Weekend.”

The Coca-Cola 600 will be televised live on FOX at 6 p.m. EDT and can be heard on the radio through the Performance Racing Network beginning at 5:45 p.m. EDT.
