Five-time Piston-Cup champion Lightning McQueen and tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez will be on site Saturday and Sunday, while sleek next-gen racer Jackson Storm joins the party on Sunday only.

To further celebrate the premiere of the racing feature, comedian and actress Cristela Alonzo, the voice of the film’s elite trainer Cruz Ramirez, has been named Grand Marshal of the Toyota/Save Mart 350.

Alonzo will be honored on Friday, June 23, at the Children’s Champions Grand Marshal Banquet at beautiful Cline Cellars in Sonoma. The gala is a fundraiser for the Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities. She will also take part in pre-race activities on Sunday, June 25, and will participate in the official command of, “Drivers, Start Your Engines.”

“I’m so grateful to be the Grand Marshal and be part of such a not only fun, but special event,” said Alonzo, who is the first woman to be named NASCAR Grand Marshal in Sonoma.

“We are delighted to work with Disney and Pixar to bring ‘Cars 3’ to life for our race fans during NASCAR weekend in Sonoma,” said Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway President & General Manager. “’Cars’ is such an iconic brand, and it’s exciting that our fans can enjoy the movie and then see the real thing at our event.”

ABOUT THE MOVIE “Cars 3” Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn't through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage! Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist "Cars," "Cars 2"), produced by Kevin Reher ("A Bug's Life," "La Luna" short) and co-produced by Andrea Warren ("LAVA" short), "Cars 3" cruises into theaters on June 16, 2017.
