The Great American Race

Disc One | 1959-1968

Experience the beginning of the Daytona 500 and the first generation of NASCAR families. Lee Perry's photo finish victory in the inaugural race, Fireball Roberts' spectacular win in front of the hometown crowd, victories by great names in racing like Junior Johnson, Tiny Lund and Mario Andretti, Cale Yarborough's one-second victory in '68 and Richard Petty's first two wins, you will have it all. This is where the traditions were born.

Disc Two | 1969-1978

Watch as traditions continue into a new era. Sponsorship from auto manufacturers gives way to bigger advertising deals and more money. Modernization creates faster cars with more horsepower and better aerodynamics. New drivers, like Pete Hamilton, burst onto the scene and familiar names, like Petty and Allison, establish dynasties. Be there as Richard Petty wins his record third, fourth and fifth Daytona 500s.

Disc Three | 1979-1988

Record speeds, restrictor plates, risky decisions and repeat champions are all part of this decade. Experience the fastest 500 in history, Buddy Baker's 1980 race, the close competition of restrictor place racing and back-to-back wins by Cale Yarborough. This disc also includes the amazing gamble Richard Petty took in '81, to win his seventh victory and the agony of his worst crash in '88.

Disc Four | 1989-1998

Relive the excitement of the next generation of Daytona 500 drivers. Davey Allison's win in '92, Jeff Gordon's 5th place finish his rookie year and win in '97, Dale Jarrett's victories in '93 and '96 and Sterling Martin's back-to-back wins in '94 and '95, are all included on this disc. Plus, after two decades of near-misses, finishing 2nd four times, be part of the celebration as Dale Earnhardt finally gets his wins in the '98 Daytona 500.

Disc Five | 1999-2008

The recent history of the Daytona 500 is forever entwined with the crash and subsequent death of Dale Earnhardt on the last lap of the 2001 race. This disc includes that race and the 2004 victory by his son Dale Earnhardt, Jr. In addition, you will get Jeff Gordon's wins in '99 and '05, Michael Waltrip's wins in '01 and '03 and the spectacular 2007 race with the closest finish since the first Daytona 500 in 1959.
