FC: Cars By Lane Aultman, Josiah Goering, and Patrick Zabinski
1: Ordinary World Call to Adventure Refusal of the Call Meeting with the Mentor Crossing the First Threshold Tests, Allies, Enemies | Approach to the Inmost Cave Ordeal/Death Experience Reward The Road Back Resurrection Return with Elixir
2: 1. Ordinary World Lightning McQueen is a rookie race car and is going to race in The Piston Cup.
3: 2. CALL TO ADVENTURE!!! Mack falls asleep and Lightning McQueen rolls out the back of his trailer and ends up driving to Carburetor Springs and he needs to get back for the Piston Cup.
4: 3. Refusal of the Call As Lightning McQueen loses control and loses his way he speeds and is chased by a police car for speeding. The police car chases him to Carburetor Springs and L. McQ screws up the main street by dragging the statue of the founder of Carburetor Springs (darn I forgot his name) on the asphalt, making it look like a sorry excuse for a road. The cars at Radiator Springs make him fix it but he refuses since he wants to make it in time for his race.
5: 4. Meeting With the Mentor The first car at Radiator Springs that L. McQ becomes acquainted with is Tow Mater. He initially shows Lighting around and becomes his first true friend.
6: Doc challenges Lightning McQueen to a race and Lightning is sure that he will win. Lightning McQueen takes off but Doc just stays their and then when Lightning gets up to the first corner he skids off the track. Then Lightning goes back and has to scrape off the asphalt. So then he races Doc again and he heeds Doc's advice of turning right to go left, which is a philosophy that he is quite skeptical of, and he wins. | Crossing the First Threshold
7: Tests, Allies, and Enemies One of Lightning McQueens biggest tests was to fix the road in Radiator Springs that he destroyed. Another test was getting the will power to actually go to the Piston Cup. McQueen began to lose interest in the whole thing once Radiator Springs got fixed up. McQueens allies were pretty much everyone in Radiator Springs. His enemies were his opponents in the race.
8: When Lightning McQueen manages to manages to finish his needed tasks in Carburetor Springs, and makes it to the big race. He races to win the Piston Cup. Doc Hudson was a former winner of the Piston Cup, so Lightning McQueen wants to make him proud. | Approach to the Inmost Cave
9: Ordeal/Death Experience | The big ordeal that almost cost Lightning McQueen the Piston Cup, and his life, was when Mack (Lightning McQueen's Semi-Truck) started dozing off and started hitting bumps which dropped an object on to the door switch. Lightning McQueen, left stranded and without headlights, drives to the nearest town. He only has less then a week to make it all the way to the Piston Cup.
11: The Road Back
12: Resurrection | In a desperate attempt to win the Piston Cup, Chick Hicks hits The King (Strip Weathers) hard, sending him flying, and landing hard, leaving him battered and heavily damaged. As Lightning is about to cross the finish line, he turns around and pushes The King across the finish line so he can finish with dignity. He asks Lightning why he gave up winning the Piston Cup so he can go help him, Lightning echoes the words of Doc by saying, "They're just a bunch of empty cups." Chick Hicks wins the Piston Cup, but is booed for his actions, so it doesn't feel like the true victory he thought it would be.
13: Return With the Elixir | Lightning is praised by his fans and is offered sponsorship by Dinoco, but decides to stay with Rust-eeze. He then moves to Radiator Springs and returns the town to its former glory!!
