I never got Hot Wheels as a kid. It infuriated my because my friends would all have the orange track littered throughout their rooms, but I had to make do with cars that wouldn’t do a loop-the-loop, but instead get caught in the carpet. I still want a track now, and this has made me want one even more.
Unfortunately I now live with a girl. I know right, ew. And she won’t let me buy stupid amounts of Hot Wheels, but thankfully, NASCAR star Joey Logano is here to fulfil our need by converting his garage into a Hot Wheels playroom.

“Hot Wheels has been pushing the boundaries in car culture with it?s challenger spirit, outrageous design and unparalleled performance for over 51 years,” said Ricardo Briceno, Hot Wheels’ senior director of brand marketing. “Joey Logano embodies that same spirit in his racing, which is why we’re thrilled to partner with him on this record-breaking track and special edition die-cast. He’s truly brought the Hot Wheels challenger spirit to life today.”
Spanning just under 600 metres and spanning the garage while winding around his cars such as a DMC DeLorean and a number of Ford hotrods, this is the longest Hot Wheels track in the world.
“Talk about a childhood dream come true! I have so many memories playing with my Hot Wheels cars as a kid, and it’s fun to jump back in that space with my son who shares the same passion for his Hot Wheels as I did,” said Logano. “Hot Wheels basically founded my passion for racing – the first car I ever had was a Hot Wheels car – and now being here, setting this world record with my son and an amazing team of Hot Wheels fans is a great way to announce our new special edition Ford Mustang.”
