Technology is a part of everyone’s life.
If it’s not the latest and greatest you probably don’t even want it. That’s true for everyone’s life, and especially true in sports. Athletes are younger and stronger and everyone will do and use whatever it takes to get an advantage. That happens every day and even happens in the Cars universe in ‘Cars 3’. Lightning (Owen Wilson) is still the champ until a younger, faster, more technology-heavy car in Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). Lightning needs to train but finds the new stuff of treadmills, wind tunnels, VR, and interactive simulation to be wrong.
Lightning takes it old school and trains on a beach using past methods. At one point I half expected a Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story reference and yell “if you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball”. Can old school beat new school, and can Lightning regain the championship?
