Cole Trickle enters the high-pressure world of Nascar racing. He's a hot driver with a hot temper, and this attitude gets him into trouble not only with other drivers, but members of his own team as well. Written by

The scene where Cole and Rowdy destroy a pair of rental cars by racing them through the city streets loosely referenced early 1950s NASCAR superstars Joe Weatherly and Curtis Turner, each of whom were known to rent cars, race, and crash them with abandon. See more »
Many shots of the first race that Cole wins at a non-Daytona race clearly show the word Daytona on the walls of the track and the flagman's booth has it emblazoned on its side. See more »
What kind of driver are you going to find after the season's started? Some old boy who's washed up, and wasn't worth a shit to begin with.

Can you say "Top Wheel" ... You will after watching this turkey
I saw this movie when it came out 15 years ago and still rue the $7.50 I spent. Having heard all about the movie for the year before as it was being made I was really excited to see it. But what did I get? Top Gun with wheels instead of wings.
I loved Top Gun and still have it in my collection. It was a classic. Days of Blunder was a classic, too. A classic bomb.
Sure there are some nice car crashes, but that's where the good part ends. And, while we all know movies aren't supposed to be real, this took the "Rubbin's Racing" theory way, way beyond extreme.
I gave this movie a four, and I'm not sure why I put it that high. If you ever think about renting it, do it for a good laugh at a turkey. Otherwise try something else.
