Tom Cruise’s Need for Speed on ESPN Video

Tom Cruise is revved up about racing! Watch his interview with ESPN about the start of the NASCAR season from the NASCAR Spring Cup Banquet in New York last December.

“For me as a kid growing up, I always wanted to race cars,” said Cruise. “My personal Daytona memory was getting up close to 200 m.p.h., personally driving on that track one afternoon in the car.”

Want to see Tom race those cars? Watch the ‘Days of Thunder’ movie trailer. Cruise stars as Cole Trickle, a top-notch NASCAR driver gunning for the number one spot. Fun fact: the movie was filmed at the Daytona International Speedway, which is where NASCAR season kicks off this weekend.
