Character voice and Route 66 consultant Michael Wallis told WGBZ radio on August 17, 2013 that the film will be again set on historical California highways: "We did 'Cars 2,' which I'm glad to skip over because I didn't particularly care for it, but [for] 'Cars 3' we're coming back to the road. And we're coming back to 66 and to 99, the sixes upside down -- that's the road that runs right through central California."
