Kurt Busch will drive the 'Days of Thunder' car at Daytona
The car that Tom Cruise made famous in the movie 'Days of Thunder' will actually race in a real NASCAR event thanks to Kurt Busch.
Kurt Busch will pay homage to the classic NASCAR movie Days of Thunder by using the paint scheme made famous in the flick.
Busch will race in the "City Chevrolet" that Tom Cruise's character, "Cole Trickle," drove in the 1990 movie.

To promote the car that Busch will race in Friday's Nationwide Series race at Daytona, he, crew chief Nick Harrison and legendary owner Rick Hendrick acted out a scene from the movie.
The owner of Cruise's car in the movie is actually a character based on Hendrick.
If you've never seen the movie, it's the story of a young driver who must overcome a head injury to beat his rival and take his place at the top of the circuit. Or, more simply, it's nearly two hours of Cruise doing reckless things on and off the track.
