Though set in 1981, the action features a young Ricky Bobby burning through the residential streets in a 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye being chased by his father Reese Bobby (Gary Cole reprising his role from the original film) in a 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat.

Young Ricky simply just wants to "go fast," with his father hot on his tail cranking AC/DC's new track, perfectly placed in view on the Dodge stereo player. The pair are soon joined on the streets of Talladega by a young Cal Naughton Jr. in a 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, pulling off a bit of "shake and bake." Eventually Reese implores the boys to remember his motto, "If you ain't first, you're last." Watch the spot in full below:
