Cars 3: Lightning is now a pro Piston Cup racer, but a newer generation is in the racing world. A next-gen racer is being shown here. The blue car is next-gen. He keeps losing to Jackson Storm, a black next-gen. He is #20 and he races for the IGNITR team. Cruz Ramirez, a trainer, trains Lighthing to get ready for the Florida 500. It is on a next-gen racetrack and where Storm lapped the fastest lap in the world. Cruz's top speed is actually higher than Lightning. Cruz accelerates faster, too. Slower than the next-gens, but faster than Lightning.
