Not everyone is a NASCAR fan, but those who are, are often fan-atics, and proud of it! Next up for some of these fans and their mini-me’s is the release of “Mickey and the Roadster Racers” on the Disney channels.

The show premiered on Sunday, January 15, and features the voice talents of Danica Patrick, Jimmie Johnson, and Jeff Gordon, including the standard cast of Disney characters as the Sensational Six (Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Minnie, Daisy, and Pluto) and focuses on racing (of course), positive attitudes, and an underlying moral. The successor to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, the show debuted on Disney Junior and will highlight around-the-world scenery from a place called Hot Dog Hills.

Two additional episodes premiered January 16, at 9 and 9:25 a.m. on the Disney Channel, and the series has also been made available through the Disney Junior app, Disney VOD, and iTunes. Using humor, high-speed races, and transforming vehicles, the demographic they’re aiming for are kids ages 2-7 years, with storylines centering on emotional and social lessons. Johnson, Patrick, and Gordon will voice recurring characters, while just a few of the additional guest voices include: Jay Leno, Tony Shalhoub, Tia Carrere, and Hoda Kotb.
