This article is about the road race in Cars: The Video Game. For the minigame in Cars: Race-O-Rama, see Sheriff's Chase (Cars: Race-O-Rama).

Sheriff's Chase is an event in Cars: The Video Game. It stretches through almost all of Radiator Springs and Ornament Valley.

Course layout

The race starts on the road from Ornament Valley, into the Drive-In Theatre. Then racers turn and go through Radiator Springs, back into the Nature Preserve and into a rocky trench that leads into Ornament Valley. Then racers go under a bridge, and next to a field, into another rocky cliff-side, onto a short road that leads over an old-fashioned bridge, back to Radiator Springs.

In story mode, the player's character is Lightning McQueen, and the only opponent is Sheriff.

  • This is the only race in the game that is actually one lap. Sally's Wheel Well Sprint and Tailfin Pass Grand Prix are called one-lap races, but they are not exactly laps.
  • Since the track is dedicated to Sheriff, he will always appear as an opponent in this race in Arcade mode, unless the player is racing as him, in which he will appear as the racer the player is driving as.
  • This is the only race in the game to still have two racers in Arcade mode, while all the others (except for Doc's Challenge, which has four) have five racers.
