Cars 2: Mater's Spy Chase
By: Phoenix Ride
Ch.1: Ticket To Race
It was another beautiful day in Radiator Springs. The sun was shining, the gas was flowing, and business was booming. Ever since Lightning McQueen had made Radiator Springs his big racing HQ two years ago, tourism was flying through the roof.
Cars came from all of the country to not only see the small town, but also the musuem at which Mater was the happy tour guide. Mater had become much more than your average tow truck during the last two years.
He was a great storyteller and the heart and soul of the whole town. People always looked to him for having a good laugh. And even though Mater loved being both a tow truck and a tour guide, his favorite title of all was being the best friend to Lightning McQueen.
Ah, how he missing the good ol' days when he and his buddy would go tractor tipping in the fields, play pranks on one another, and drive backwards through the street. But ever since Doc Hudson got pulled off to that big garage in the sky, the kid had been pushing himself harder to make his old teacher proud.
" I just wish we could have another adventure again," thought Mater to himself.
Excitment suddenly began pouring through the streets as the eighteen wheeler, Mack, showed up, letting out a grinning Lightning McQueen from the back holding out his newest Piston Cup.
A crowd suddenly formed around the famous red sportscar, only to be divided when Mayor Sally drove up to see her boyfriend. Ever since Doc Hudson died Sally had stepped up to take his place. The town may have been the same without Doc, but with Sally around things still ran smoothly.
"Let's get out of here Stickers," said Sally, and carefully navigated Lightning through the paparazzi and into Flo's. Mater followed in after his buddy, and congradulated him on the win.
The inside of Flo's cafe had been changed into a lounge, where cars could hang out, play pool, and even watch racing on T.V. What was going on the tube right now was a race somewhere over in Italy, with a colorful green, white, and red speeding past the finish line. Sally immediately swooned and dashed over towards the T.V. Lightning immediately became jealous, what had happened to him?
"Who is this guy?" asked Lightning, driving up to where Sally, and sevral other female cars were parked.
"The Star of Italy, Francesco Burnelli" said Sally lovingly " I just love those open wheels,"
"He's the fastest racecar in the world," said a pink, female car.
"The best," said a yellow, female car.
"What? Are you kidding?" said Mater, driving over " no one's faster here then my pal Lightning. I bet he can beat this Francesco of yours with one wheels tied around his back,"
"Thanks Mater," said Lightning to his friend.
"Oh really" said the yellow car " then let's see him prove it, at the World Grand Prix,"
"Your on!" shouted Mater, then looked confused " what's a World Grand Prix?"
" The World Grand Prix" explained a black racecar named Lewis " is a new worldwide race produced by Miles Axeilord. Three races taking place in Japan and Europe. Whoever wins the race wins the title of the fastest car in the world,"
"That big huh?" said Lightning.
"Yeah" said a yellow racecar named Jeff " you plan on entering it dude,"
"Unintentionally" said Lightning " but who can ignore a good race. And the chance to be the fastest in the world, who can miss a shot like that? My friends are fixing up a good luck party as we speak,"
"See you on the tube man" said Jeff " we know your gonna win,"
And with that said, Jeff and Lewis drove off. As soon as his racing buddies were gone, Lightning lost his smile, and solemnly drove over to where the statue of Doc Hudson lay. The statue had been built in memorial for the old racecar's death, and it made Lightning sad everytime he looked at it.
"Something wrong Stickers?" asked Sally, driving up next to McQueen.
"Just thinking of an old friend" said Lightning, nuzzling up to his girlfriend " how I wish he could be here at this race,"
"You have to find another Crew Chief you know?" said Sally.
"I know," said Lightning.
"So who's it going to be?" asked Sally.
Silence was her only answer.
The party was great! Music was playing, people were chatting, and Mater was putting on a catering show for all the guests. No he wasn't making the food, Flo was. He was just serving it.
Throughout the whole party, Lightning was thinking very hard on what his pit crew for the big race should be. Luigi and Guido were a must of course. If Lightning ever got a flat tire during a race he knew exactly who to call. Fillmore and Sarge usually handled the gas mileage.
Basically, it was the same exact pit crew he normally took to his Pitson Cup races, except for one thing, the Crew Chief. Who would be worthy of taking Doc's place?
Sally couldn't do it, she had a whole town to run. Red was to big to fit on a plane, and Lizzy was to old. The Shierff was smart, but he was on duty all the time now that tourism had found it's way to Radiator Springs. Flo had to run the gas station, so that only left one choice.
"Hey Mater" said Lightning " how'd you like to see the world with me?"
"Huh, you mean it?" said Mater, surprised.
"You bet buddy" said Lightning " so what do you say?"
"What do I say?" said Mater " Woooeee!"
With that said, Mater began driving back and forth all excited. He couldn't believe it, his wish had been granted! This going to be his and Lightning's greatest adventure yet!
Meanwhile, at their headquarters in Japan, secret agent Finn McMissle and Holley Shiftwell had just arrived back from a narrow escape aboard a flaming oil rig, failing to incarcirate the infamous Professor Z.
As Holley went to file the report, Finn recieved a incoming message from one of his American contacts who had been researching into Professor Z. According to the message, one agent had found out some crucial information about the Grand Prix, and would redevous with British Itelligence at the big welcome party for the racers.
"We'll be there my friend," said Fin to himself, and with that said, he drove off.
