According to Entertainment Weekly:

“Gibbs, Morse, and the Pixar team had a lot of fun with the new characters, who were inspired by the racers who compete in Mexico’s famous Baja 1000 race. ‘They have all these different classes for that race, so we tried to pick the most interesting cars,’ says Gibbs. ‘So there’s four of them: a Baja Bug, a Class-1 dune buggy, a Meyers Manx dune buggy, and a trophy truck, the big money ones, you know, with huge suspension and huge wheels.'”

Also according to EW, another Tales from Radiator Springs short is in the works for 2015.
