I watched Days of Thunder not that long ago and it screams CS-80 to me, definitely running it through a nice reverb too, likely a Lexicon 200, 400L or similar.

It's a magnificent sound, hardly surprising Vangelis built a career on it.

I recall an article in Keyboard at the time and he had the Fairlight CMI 3, and then lots of rack gear, TX816, MKS80 and LOTS of S1000's. I think I recall mention of a Moog been sampled for bass stuff. I'm afraid my copy is long gone.
You always want just one more Synth!
