Cruise To Narrate Motorsports Film

Tom Cruise in Paramount Pictures' War of the Worlds - 2005 PARAMOUNT PICTURES

Tom Cruise will narrate an upcoming documentary about the history of Hendrick Motorsports.

"TOGETHER: The Hendrick Motorsports Story" will air Oct. 11 on ABC before the network begins its coverage of the Sprint Cup Series race at California.

Cruise will narrate during never-before-seen footage and family photographs that chronicle Rick Hendrick's 25 years in NASCAR.

The actor became friendly with Hendrick when the car owner did some consulting for Cruise's racing film "Days of Thunder."

Cruise and his family have been periodic guests of Hendrick at races the past several years, and the actor sat at an HMS table during last year's championship celebration.
