* LonelyAtTheTop: Lightning is headed this way, it's shown early on when he's talking to his agent and can't name a single friend to send race tickets to.

Holds the distinction of being the last Disney film released on [[UsefulNotes/{{VCR}} VHS]], as part of [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/XKnW6Dxy15o/maxresdefault.jpg an extremely rare release]] from the Disney Movie Club.

** Lightning [=McQueen=] is being identified as the first rookie to ever win the Piston Cup, however, when Doc Hudson's trophies were discovered they are engraved "1951, 1952, 1953". Doc's license plate identifies him as a 1951. That would have made him a rookie when he won his 1951 Piston Cup.

[[labelnote:Note]]But since most cars are released the year ''before'' their model year, it is plausible that Hudson could have been a rookie in 1950 with enough starts to not be classified as one in 1951. In NASCAR, rookies must attempt seven or fewer events in the season of their first attempt for them to retain rookie classification the next season.[[/labelnote]]

** The plot is kicked off by a three-way tie which results in a tiebreaker race scheduled for a week later. In NASCAR, prior to 2014, if two drivers tied for the points lead at the final race, such a tiebreaker would be broken by number of total race wins then total number of top-5 and top-10 finishes.[[labelnote:Example]]In 2011, Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart tied for the Sprint points lead at the Homestead-Miami season finale. While they had the same number of points, the championship went to Stewart because he had won five races, while Edwards only had one.[[/note]]
