Does seeing Storm’s trailer off to the side there make anyone else as happy as it does me? Something about it. I think it’s the candidness of it? Also raises questions, at least for me! Like…
Ok, so Storm is probably still around if not in the trailer itself so what’s he doing? They’re parked right next to Lightning and Cruz so is he pouting somewhere? Fuming in the trailer itself?
Why are those tires there? See them? Beside each crew chief’s ramp/spot is a tire from another team? Is that a NASCAR thing?
Why IS Storm’s trailer parked so close? I won’t lie, I spent time scanning the pits during the Florida 500, I don’t think I ever saw where Storm was actually pitted BUT it definitely wasn’t that close to Lightning.
Theory: The Cars universe actually takes place in a doomed human reality where this weak race of subjugated monsters from Monsters, Inc. were exiled to. They lack an exoskeleton, so they found refuge in the shells of the vehicles we left behind and took on our culture where we left off.
