Cars 3: Sputter Stop Racing Tractor

Welcome back Cars fans! Tonight I'm taking a quick look at yet another Cars 3 1:55 scale diecast from Mattel...the Sputter Stop Racing Tractor! This one started hitting shelves just a few weeks back (as part of 2021 Case E) and is a brand new, never-before-released character. This is the fifth racing tractor release following Shiny Wax Tractor, Rev-N-Go Tractor, Bumper Save Tractor and Easy Idle Tractor.

As shown in the screen shot above, the Sputter Stop racer (Sheldon Shifter) appears in tractor form when Cruz Ramirez imagines all of the Next-Generation Piston Cup racers as tractors during the climatic Florida 500 race. This is right after Lightning tells Cruz to "sneak through the window", which hearkens back to their training with Smokey in the field of tractors earlier in the film. Such a fun and clever "pay off" moment!

There are definitely more "tractor racers" coming soon (I know View Zeen has been confirmed so far), so stay tuned to my upcoming reviews. I found this one at Target around three weeks ago and you can still find it pretty easily in stores, so be sure to check your nearest Walmart or Target. If you'd rather just pick it up online, you can check eBay HERE or Amazon (not yet available).

Good luck on the hunt! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments.
