Mickey and the Roadster Racers takes the gang and their unique transforming cars on humorous high-spirited races around the globe and back home in Hot Dog Hills.
Legendary NASCAR drivers Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick, and Jeff Gordon have zoomed into the recording studio to lend their voices to new characters
The characters may be racing around exotic locales like Paris and Hawai’i, but wherever Mickey and friends find themselves in Mickey and the Roadster Racers, the themes of sportsmanship, teamwork, loyalty, and friendship are always strong. “We really want to continue the heritage of Mickey being the most positive, optimistic character,” Seidenburg says.

Dennis Anderson, driver of Grave Digger, was injured during a show Saturday night, his son says he’s getting better and will be okJanuary 18th, 2017 by admin
Just after the 2 minute 40 second mark, Anderson tried a backflip but there wasn’t enough rotation, and it landed on the lid, hard.
Anderson, 56, is one of the most successful monster truck drivers in history, having competed in Monster Jam since 1982. The Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina native has four World Finals titles, three in the racing category and one in freestyle.
During last weekend’s show in Tampa, Florida, he attempted a backflip that went awry with the truck landing upside down. Anderson was helped from the wreckage by paramedics before being transported to a local hospital for further evaluation

Ralph Marano owns every Packard concept car made, save for one—the Predictor—which is permanently displayed in the Studebaker National Museum in South BendJanuary 17th, 2017 by admin
Ralph is one of the premier living Packard collectors, not just in this country, but in the world. His collection numbers 85 classic automobiles, every single one of them 100-point concours quality. If you’ve been to Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Meadow Brook or the Glenmoor Gathering in the past two decades, you’ve run across one of Ralph’s prizes at some point, and probably more than once.
The Marano collection is one of America’s greatest. And unlike some collectors, Ralph doesn’t try to hide what he’s got. The glassed-in building in Garwood is his private museum.
Among the most sought-after Packards are those with custom-built bodies, especially from Darrin. Mr. Marano said he was the only collector to own a Packard Darrin from each of its years of manufacture, 1937 through 1942.
Mr. Marano has owned some Darrins with celebrity provenance.
In 1985, he acquired a 1942 Darrin 180 Victoria driven by George Peppard in the television series “Banacek.”
In 1989, he traded cars and cash for a ’38 Darrin that Al Jolson commissioned for Ruby Keeler.
His red ’37 Darrin 120 convertible Victoria was originally owned by Clark Gable. “Gable didn’t like its running board option, and sold it back to Darrin, who sold it to Errol Flynn,” Mr. Marano said.
Show cars were important to Packard, helping to project an image of a company able to compete with the advanced styling of larger automakers. Mr. Marano decided several years ago that he would try to acquire all of the extant Packard show cars. He now owns a 1952 Pan American two-passenger design study; the ’53 Balboa; the fiberglass-body Panther of 1954; and the 1955 Request.
The teams needed at least 344,000 Lego bricks – in 17 different shades. The team needed 222 hours to design, and 1,833 hours to build. It was concluded in the Lego Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut, alongside Lego Master Builders.
Measuring 17-feet long and featuring exclusive stud shooters, the LEGO® Batmobile from Chevrolet was designed to strike fear in the heart of any villain. The vehicle was inspired by Batman’s Speedwagon featured in “The LEGO® Batman Movie,” which hits U.S. theaters on Feb. 10.
