FIRST ANNUAL SONORA SPEEDWAY EVENT!



Perhaps you heard 
the engines 
revving last week?

The tires screeching?

The crowds roaring?

That was the sound of the 
first annual
DISNEY TVA AND DTS
SONORA SPEEDWAY
EVENT


Before you get all like,

The whaaaaa?

Ima tell you:

First,
every department in
Disney Television Animation
and 
Disney Toon Studios
was given a 
scale model
remote control car
that they were to customize
to represent their team.

Team Sophia The First
made this:


Gravity Falls made this:


The 7D crew made this:


Fish Hooks
creator
Noah Z. Jones
made... 

um...

this?


um...

anyway...

There were lots of great cars on display:






But these cars weren't made for show.
They were made for
SPEED!

Set up in the studio parking lot
was a 
MAJOR
racing course
with all sorts of obstacles:





Here's the TVA Casting Department
going for the big jump:


Each car was timed going 
through the course
with the top 8 going to the semi finals
and the top 2
going to the finals.

And the winner was:

Disney Toon Studio!

(sorry... no picture available)

(but they had cool jumpsuits so it's not shocking they won)

But there wasn't just 
RACING
going on
at this event!

There was a mini
CAR SHOW:




And there was
plenty of
FOOD AND DRINK:

Hot Dogs

Chicken Sandwiches

Sno Cones

and most importantly:


 How cool is it that Disney puts on
great events like this?

VERY COOL.

Now if we could get the 
weather to be under 100 degrees
next year
it'll be even cooler!

Thanks, Disney!

I loved the Herbie(s) and Gravity Falls car, but the video is "Private".
