Tony Scott’s 1990 film DAYS OF THUNDER is a personal favorite – one that tapped into my love of racing and inspired me to build the official model kits of the cars driven by Tom Cruise (Mello Yello) and Cary Elwes (Hardee’s) in the film. Paramount Pictures released that film 25 years ago this year, and it’s still a very quotable piece for NASCAR fans. To celebrate the anniversary of the film and the return of M&M’s® Crispy, Kyle Busch – driver of the #18 M&M’S® Crispy Toyota is starring in a new spoof/tribute alongside his new crew chief Adam Stevens and others. Check out the short film and some bonus features below…
After a decade of phone calls, petitions, Facebook posts and countless other pleas, M&M’S® Crispy returned to stores nationwide in January 2015.
