The Piston Cup tournament is entered by Sora, Donald, Lightning McQueen and Goofy upon saving Radiator Springs from the heartless commanded by rival racer Chick Hicks.

Sora, McQueen, Donald and Goofy enter to win the Piston Cup to infuriate Hicks so that his heart opens fully to the anger which will lead to his heart's darkness, in hope the heartless will consume and ensure Radiator Springs will be safe from Maleficent.

Each race won where the group overtakes Hicks infuriates him even more the point of the next race having more dangerous obstacles such as sabotaging heartless.

Two Races of three completed in second or first ensures a clear so that the group combats Hicks in a final confrontation which upon completion leads to the locking of the world's keyhole.

The first race is unlocked only if the keyholes of Montropolis and Ant Island have been sealed and if the heartless attack upon Radiator Springs' main town is cleared.

The second following race is only available if the Mad Machine heartless has been destroyed.

And the final third race is only available if the Frank Heartless and Piston Cup Heartless challenges are complete.

Chick Hicks upon defeat unlocks all the races for further use and the full journal entry.
