Cars 3 movie quotes help tell the story in the third film in the Disney Pixar Cars series. Brian Fee directed the movie using a screenplay by Kiel Murray, Bob Peterson and Mike Rich using a story by Brian Fee, Ben Queen, Eyal Podell and Jonathan E. Stewart. Cars 3 opened theatrically in the United States on June 16, 2017.

In Cars 3, Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) had a good run but his racing career seems to be ending as new high-tech race cars are taking over the industry. One especially bad crash plus hot newcomer Jackson Storm (voiced by Armie Hammer) has many in the news media wondering if it's time for Lightning McQueen to retire. 

But McQueen doesn't feel ready to stop racing and hires trainer Cruz Ramirez (voiced by Cristela Alonzo) to help him get back in the game. Alongside friends like Mater (voiced by Larry the Cable Guy), Sally Carrera (voiced by Bonnie Hunt), Smokey (voiced by Chris Cooper) and Sterling (voiced by Nathan Fillion), among others, McQueen tries new tactics to remain competitive ahead of a big race against Jackson Storm.

Cars 3 was just one of several great summer 2017 movies in theaters including The Hero, It Comes at Night, Megan Leavey, and The Mummy.

      Sterling: You are about to become the biggest brand in racing. Movie deals, infomercial, product endorsements, you think you're famous now? You'll be rich beyond belief.
      Lightning McQueen: Mr. Sterling, what is this about?
      Sterling: Your legacy... every time you lose, you damage yourself. I'm sorry... your racing days are coming to an end.

      Knowing that McQueen's racing days are limited, Sterling tries to transition McQueen into post-racing life in these Cars 3 movie quotes. Sterling offers some endorsement ideas to supplement McQueen's income, not that McQueen is ready to admit that his career is ending.
