Mickey and the Roadster Racers is a new show on the Disney Junior channel. The show features Mickey and friends as they race around the world in a series of crazy and fun races.

While racing across the world as fast as possible there is learning taking place about each country they are racing in.

But this isn’t just any Mickey Mouse fun, and it isn’t just any wacky race.

NASCAR celebrities such as Jeff Gordon, Danica Patrick and Jimmie Johnson have taken some time off the track to lend their voices to the show.

Jeff Gordon is the guest star known as Gordon Gear. Here he is as the handsome hot dog driver. Who knew that snarfing down hot dogs was the key to winning NASCAR races?

Danica Patrick guest stars as race car driver Dannie Sue. Jimmie Johnson stars as Jumping Jiminy Johnson.

Who knows? After their racing days are over Jeff, Danica and Jimmie may have a future as Disney stars.

This isn’t the first time Mickey Mouse has teamed up with NASCAR.

In 2004 this Mickey Mouse Monte Carlo diecast car was made to celebrate the Daytona 500.

The diecast is a good size, made on a 1:24 scale.

Only 20,008 were made so it is a real collectible.

Mickey Mouse Teams Up with the Los Angeles Clippers

It only makes sense that the NBA Clippers, based in Los Angeles, would team up with another Southern California icon: Mickey Mouse. Here is a video of Mickey at the Clippers training facility helping teach different moves to the players and at the end giving them Mickey Mouse Ears to wear!

And in this video Mickey Mouse is using his magical touch to make a Rube Goldberg pass to Clippers player Paul Pierce:

Harlem Globetrotters eat your heart out! With moves and passes like this will somebody sign Mickey to a contract! But perhaps Mickey his too busy with more important events.

Mickey was visiting the Clippers and making a half time appearance at a game between Los Angeles and LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to get support for Make-A-Wish recipients. Make-A-Wish helps young children with a life threatening medical condition experience one of their dreams – including getting to see their NBA heroes in person at a game.
