Days of Thunder Comes to Kohl’s

RIPPLE JUNCTION -- T-Shirt 1 02-10I’m not a NASCAR fan, per se, but I’ve watched raced here and there (usually Daytona) and I absolutely loved Days of Thunder when it came out. To this day, my brother and I still yell “ICE CREAM?!?” at each other in reference to the scene were Robert Duvall tells Tom Cruise he can’t make a pit stop because they’re enjoying dessert.

So naturally I was pleased as punch this morning to see that Paramount and Ripple Junction’s line of Days of Thunder T-shirts will be available at Kohl’s in the spring. There will be three different designs, and the shirts will have an MSRP of of $18.99 each.
