Somehow I missed this whole video earlier this month, and just happened to catch them talking about it on a few weeks old MRN program I was listening to in the car.
Between vacation and work, this one just slipped through the cracks and I wanted to post it to the site for anyone else that missed it. Plus it’s just so cool as a fan of Days of Thunder.
Long before I had ever seen or been to a race, I’d seen Days of Thunder multiple times, and now both of the NASCAR Busch brothers have paid tribute to the movie within a couple years of each other. A few back, Kurt Busch drove a Nationwide car painted up like the City Chevy featured early in the Tom Cruise Film.
Regardless, earlier this month, M&M’s, Kyle Busch and Joe Gibbs Racing teamed up to do this trailer/tribute and did a great job of paying homage to the film — complete with period-accurate jean jackets and racing goggles.
