      BALTIMORE, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Three of the stars of Disney-Pixar's exciting new computer-animated feature "CARS" arrived in Hollywood for the opening weekend of the film and a special midnight screening on June 9, 2006 at Disney's El Capitan Theater. The life-sized models, part of Disney-Pixar's "CARS Road Trip 06" experience presented by State Farm(R), were a major hit at the World Premiere of Disney-Pixar's "CARS" on May 26 in Charlotte, NC at the Lowe's Motor Speedway. The touring experience, which was designed and is being managed by the Becker Group, will continue to cross the country throughout the summer and will travel to a total of over 40 cities. (Photo: ) The three stars ride in style via a special truck produced by the Becker Group and inspired by the character Mack. In fact, the tractor is provided by none other than Mack Trucks, Inc. "This experience brings to life the excitement and fun of 'CARS,' a film everyone in the family will enjoy," says Glenn Tilley, President of the Becker Group. The Becker Group is an award- winning experiential marketing company that has worked on many major films, but "CARS" marks the first time they have literally taken the stars on a cross country road trip. "We have really enjoyed working alongside such world-class organizations as Disney-Pixar, State Farm and Mack Trucks, Inc.," adds Tilley.
