"I've seen it on TV of course."
It's John C. Reilly! Haha. Shake and Bake. :p [20131218: It turns out that there is a reference to Days of Thunder in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006). After he crashes, Ricky Bobby thinks he's on fire, starts running around, and starts yelling, "Help me Jesus! Help me Jewish God! Help me Allah! Aaaahhhh! Help me Tom Cruise! Tom Cruise, use your witchcraft on me to get the fire off me!"]

Cole and his rival Rowdy Burns (Michael Rooker) racing
through the hospital hallway in their wheelchairs.

Ha, everybody's roughin' him up.
"Hit the Pace car!"
"Well how 'bout that? A side we don't have to fix."
"I see it." I didn't see that coming.
Ha! They're finishing their race.
Oh man, these two are crazy.

Dr. Claire Lewicki (Nicole Kidman) is Cole's hospital doctor and his eventual love interest.
