Lance Bergstein is a race car driver. Lance's passion for cars existed throughout his entire life but it was not until he was 20 years old and done playing competitive tennis that he realized his passion and talent for racing cars. Lance has competed in VLN endurance races at the Nurburgring, multiple 24-hour races throughout the United States and Europe, as well as being a regular in the SCCA Hoosier Super Tour Spec Miata Field. Lance is also a 28-year-old type 1 diabetic who has to manage his Diabetes 24/7 and that challenge is exponentially greater when racing wheel to wheel at over 150 mph. Lance credits organizations like JDRF and technologies like Dexcom for enabling him to continue to pursue his dream of high-level auto racing. Lance continues to be a car enthusiast on and off the track. When he’s not in a car or on a racing simulator, Lance works as a real estate developer.

Her father is Indy racer, Johnny Unser, a past Cars Yeah guest, and the list of Unser racers is long, indeed.  With the support of her famous family, she is rapidly becoming a threat on track.

Luis Rodriguez lives in New Jersey and he is a weekend warrior when it comes to cars. He is a fabricator and builder whose recent creation earned him the winner of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour. Hot Wheels hit the road with a traveling car show in search of a custom car worthy of being an actual Hot Wheels diecast car. As part of celebrating their legacy, that started in 1968, Hot Wheels scoured the nation, making 15 stops across the USA,  in search for that one special car and at SEMA 2018 they found a winner in Luis Rodriguez. Luis designed and built his 2JETZ, an authentic, unique, original ride with a garage made spirit all its own. I got to see his car in person at SEMA this year and all I can say is WOW!
