Right after the "Life is a Highway" scene, Mack is very tired and wants to stop. He is longing to go over to the Top Down Truckstop, but Lightning convinces him otherwise, wanting to hurry up and get to California so he can gain sponsorship from Dinoco.
Cars Deleted Scene: Top Down Truckstop
Lightning gets impatient, so he goes out and looks around. He gets mobbed by fans immediately, including Dusty, Rusty, Mia and Tia. Getting distracted, he doesn't notice that Mack, who has just had a ton of caffeine, is energetic again and driving away.
According to storyboards, the scene was created in July 2003.
Top Down Truckstop makes a brief appearance in Heavy Metal Mater where Mater and his band performs his first gig. Mia and Tia, who are waitresses, ask them if they have a record, which inspires Mater to record a song.
