There was a Cole Trickle sighting at the Toyota/SaveMart 350 on Sunday. Tom Cruise was seen with wife Katie Holmes and their three children at Jeff Gordon’s car during pre-race festivities. Cruise and his son, Conor, spent Father’s Day together watching the race.

Conor, 14, is either standing a step above his father, or Cruise is much shorter than we all thought he was.

In honor of our man Cole Trickle, let us enjoy the final race from Days of Thunder so that we may yet again bask in all of its impossible-yet-awesome glory.
