Los angeles international speedway

The speedway during the Piston Cup season.

The Los Angeles International Speedway, in California, is where the tiebreaker race in Piston Cup history took place in Cars after Lightning McQueen, Chick Hicks and The King tied each other at the Motor Speedway of the South. Although Chick had won the race, his fans turned on him for cheating: he had deliberately caused The King to spin out in a horrible crash. There was an attendance of nearly 200,000 cars.

In Cars 3, Los Angeles International Speedway is where the final race of the 2017 Piston Cup season took place. By then, most of the veteran racers have been replaced by next-generation rookies, though a few are still present. In the race, Lightning does well, but he is unable to get past Jackson Storm, who leads most of the time. Lightning manages to take the lead after a fast pit stop, only to be past by Jackson Storm again. Trying to catch up, Lightning decides to push himself, which leads to him sliding out of control and tumbling down the track. It would take four months for him to recover.
