You might have wondered exactly why the latest Transformers trailer was aired during the Daytona 500. Well, apart from the NASCAR race being one of the most watched sporting events in the US, the new trailer was aptly aired during the race because of a partnership between the movie and the racing series.

If you had no idea before, then let this new trailer be your introduction to three new robots that will be featured in the third installment of the blockbuster movie franchise: they’re Chevrolet Impalas dressed up as NASCAR race cars that also happen to be Transformers.

Until now, no names or affiliations – word has it that they’re one of the good guys – have been given for these three racing robots, but whatever their allegiances are, it’s still pretty cool to see some US-bred NASCAR racers in the movie.

The movie hits theaters on July 1st, 2011, making it another four-month wait for ardent fans of the franchise. And if you’re fans of NASCAR like we are, there’s another reason – or three – to anxiously wait for the movie’s release. Until then, check out the new Transformers trailer and keep a sharp eye out for those bad-ass NASCAR Transformers.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Well, I hope they will make a more interesting story next time for I bet there’s a sequel of the movie. However, the action scenes were quite heart-stopping!

To my disappointment, the movie is not that interesting! I prefer the last movie where Megan Fox is a cast! I wonder if they will be making a next installation for this one!

Hmmm, I’ve been wondering if these three cars were autobots or decepticons? Sigh, I have to research and memorize all the new characters featured on this flick.

Well, NASCAR robots really did a great job on the movie. Transformers really is one of the most anticipated movie of the year. Those robots are truly amazing!

I’m the fan of its animated series. However, I don’t find this movie has a interesting storyline and I don’t get why many people get gaga over this!

Well, they actually look good. I was really anxious about the designs that they would do on these three. Now, if I can only get over the anxiety on how will Bay do the story for this one. \

These are the three guys that I am looking forward to seeing in the movie. From what I have heard, they will be with the good guys, but I can’t confirm that until I see official photos.
