** What about '''[[Creator/MichaelKeaton the goshdarn Batman]]''' as Chick Hicks?
** The King himself, Richard Petty.
** Sheryl Crow sings the intro song "Real Gone" during the opening credits - and also makes a cameo as a camper van while singing.

** George Carlin as Fillmore, doing his Hippy Dippy Weatherman voice.

During the end credits, Mack goes to a drive-in featuring ''[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Toy Car Story]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc Monster Trucks, Inc.]]'', and ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife''.
