Directed by Tony Scott. With Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Robert Duvall, Randy Quaid. A young hot-shot stock car driver gets his chance to compete at the top level.
Days of Thunder feels like a cash grab from the Top Gun team. It takes everything marginally good about that film and makes it worse.

Days of Thunder revolved around a talented, hot-shot auto racing rookie, Cole Trickle (Cruise), who, after trying his hand in the American open wheel ranks, seeks to win on the NASCARcircuit. His mechanic mentor, Harry Hogge (Duvall), acts as his crew chief and Dr. Claire Lewicki (Kidman) is a young and beautiful brain surgeon who tries to tame Cole. The movie received middling reviews from critics who mostly shrugged off the sometimes over-the-top special effects and plot that, in many ways, resembled the earlier Bruckheimer, Scott and Cruise vehicle, Top Gun. Some NASCAR aficionados also took offense at the overuse and exaggeration of the "rubbing" (bumping) action of NASCAR, featuring maneuvers between cars that were overly dangerous and uncommon, even for the period of time in NASCAR history that the movie was filmed.

Ironically, a similar event to Trickle's intentional wrecking of another competitor happened later that season in the running of the Southern 500. Early in the race, drivers Morgan Shepherd and Ken Schradermade contact, sending Schrader into the wall. An angry Schrader returned to the race, and rammed Shepherd into the wall, knocking both drivers out of the race. In another part of the movie, Trickle is told he can not pit because the team is too busy eating ice cream. This incident occurred in a 1987 race involving Benny Parsons.In another instance, Like Hogge, Parsons was told to hit the pace car because he hit every other thing out there!
In honor of Bobby Hamilton, who was undergoing cancer treatments at the time, Kyle Buschraced a Craftsman Truck for Billy Ballew Motorsports, truck #51, and painted similarly to the Rowdy Burns car from the movie, winning at Lowe's Motor Speedway in May 2006. Busch even went so far as to have "Rowdy Busch" over the driver's side door where his name would normally be. The original Rowdy Burns Exxon #51 from the movie was used by Hamilton in his Cup debut in 1989 at Phoenix.
