Lightning McQueen wins his fourth Piston Cup.
theres a big party at the NASCAR Hall of Fame for him, and everyone is there– all the competing drivers, and the whole of Radiator Springs is there to congratulate the no-longer-rookie on his win. it’s a big fancy gala and everyone is dressed up and Sally looks amazing, and it’s the best night of Lightning’s life. but he still sneaks away when no one is looking.
he finds doc’s portrait. Lightning swirls his drink distractedly. he looks so nice in his suit. doc looks so proud.
“I beat your record, old man.”
