McQueen exhorts Mack to drive through the night to his tiebreaker race with Chick Hicks and The King in Los Angeles, despite federal DOT regulations which legally grant Mack ten hours daily of much-needed off-duty rest alongside “all those sleeping trucks” at the last truck stop on I-40. Lightning hopes to reach the venue first and to hang out with the Dinoco team. As a result, Mack falls asleep and, distracted by the Delinquent Road Hazards (who attempt to push him off the road to the shoulder), loses Lightning. Mack arrives in Radiator Springs after Doc reveals Lightning’s location and is both very relieved (“Thank the manufacturer, you’re alive!”) and apologetic (“I’m so sorry I lost you, boss. I’ll make it up to you. . . “). Lightning, who is glad to see him, forgives him.
