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…

“DAYS OF THUNDER is hands down my favorite movie, and M&M’S® Crispy is my favorite flavor M&M’S®, so to pay homage to both of those legends is amazing. I’ve seen DAYS OF THUNDER more than 100 times, so when I saw the script for the shoot, I was blown away. I can’t wait for fans’ reactions once they watch the new M&M’S® Crispy-themed DAYS OF THUNDER video.”Kyle Busch

After a decade of phone calls, petitions, Facebook posts and countless other pleas, M&M’S® Crispy returned to stores nationwide in January 2015.
