I always thought that Cruise's character name in Days of Thunder was a bit of a doozie...

Cole Trickle.

Imagine my delight when this ridiculous name was in fact a "tribute" and a nod to actual Nascar racing legend...

Dick Trickle!!

DICK TRICKLE!! That fella sound be in Boogie Nights!

Not bad for someone who can't write. Although the less said about Plo Coon, the better!
