This is as close as you can get to Daytona without a steering wheel in your hand!
Fifty times the greatest names in auto sports Foyt, Andretti, Waltrip, Earnhardt, Petty, Gordon have vied 200 laps for victory in The Great American Race. This grueling 500-mile test of man and machine, known reverentially as the Superbowl of Stock Car Racing, is the most prestigious and most-watched motor sport event in America. With the largest purse, the toughest competition and biggest bragging rights, year after year this season-opener provides classic competition and lasting memories.
And the 50th running of the storied Daytona 500 was especially thrilling! It was 160 laps of crash-free, hard-charging action tactical driving at its best! followed by a 40-lap paint-scraping, car-wrecking, all-or-nothing dash for the Finish!
As a racecar owner, the iconic Roger Penske has won the Indy 500 14 times and dominated open-wheel racing for decades, but he has never won at Daytona. And the way his driver Ryan Newman won getting a helping nudge from teammate Kurt Busch, who himself came in second was one for the story books! Tony Stewart, driving for Joe Gibbs, was leading in the final lap and by all rights should have won, but had to settle for third, with teammate Kyle Busch Kurt's younger brother! in fourth.
To celebrate this legendary race and its historic Golden Anniversary NASCAR® has created a simply fantastic DVD set to help you relive the drama and excitement of Newman's victorious effort. With the exclusive My Race technology, you choose how you watch Daytona. Whether riding shotgun with Newman, in the cars of any one of five of his competitors, or from above with the official broadcast feed, you will never experience a race like this! And you can switch views and audio whenever you like!
Plus, as an added bonus, this set includes a second DVD loaded with two exclusive NASCAR® programs celebrating the legacy and importance of the Daytona 500. A Sports Century features a roundtable discussion with NASCAR® greats like Richard Petty and Jeff Gordon recalling the moments and personalities that defined Daytona. And The Top 50 Daytona 500 Moments is the definitive history of NASCAR's greatest event.
The Daytona 500's 50th, presented with interactive My Race technology. It does NOT get any better than this!
