INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - IndyCar is hoping a turbo-charged snail can finish No. 1 at the box office and help draw younger fans to the Indianapolis 500.
IndyCar is teaming up with DreamWorks Animation to make ``Turbo,'' which is slated to hit theaters in the summer of 2013.
The animated movie features an ordinary garden snail that dreams of winning the Indianapolis 500, and gets a chance to do just that after a freak accident leaves it with extraordinary speed.
The film is scheduled for release July 19, 2013, and is the biggest deal yet for IndyCar's Entertainment division.
Filmmakers hope the racing snail can become as big a hit as the ``Cars'' series that featured a talking, NASCAR-style race car.
