I grew up watching Highway 35 as a kid. As you might have guessed, I was a major hot wheels fan, and still am one at heart. When I heard that there was an even longer follow up series to world race, I had to check it out. While some would argue that your kid will likely only watch this show if they either love hot wheels, or enjoyed the first movie, I believe there is a lot to be enjoyed here. The majority of the racing cast is comprised of brand new characters, so new comers will likely enjoy it. This show is a bit weird in it's transition from world race, and there was a ton of unused potential since the show starts about halfway through the racing realms, and some realms that weren't in the show are just fantastic on paper. The show could have been a full fledged tv series if it decided to use the rest of the realms. After watching it again, I have to say that all of the cheesy humor is not as funny as I thought it was when I was a kid, but in any case, it is a road worth taking.
