With the film’s adaptation into a series, most would assume the ever beloved Lightning McQueen would hit the tracks to earn his well deserved win. Though the achievement in itself may not be everything, one would not be conceited to assume that with the hype and love he has fostered from fans, he would surely secure a wholesome victory as a form of culmination. After all, winning still isn’t an inherently bad thing and serves as a means of minor validation. Who wouldn’t have wanted to see Lightning McQueen win a race after his growth and hardwork. He is still a professional racer, after all, and a skilled one nevertheless. If anything, fans expected Lightning to get his moment of fame, seeing as they have invested parts of themselves in him.
