I received a copy of the new Daytona 500 – 50 Years of the Great American Race DVD to check out and share with you. I’ve got to admit being pretty excited about getting it. If you know me, I call a spade a spade. So, let me get it out of the way…this is a really great DVD!
I see I’m slower than some of the other NASCAR bloggers also sharing their free give-away DVD that came with our copy. If you want to get your chance to win my free give-away copy read about it here.
Here’s the other NASCAR sites giving out a free copy. (Email me if I missed your site)
Want to know more? Ok.
When the DVD starting playing, I thought out loud, “Is this a game?”
My daughter thought the same thing. Then I realized the car numbers and little screen views I saw (I could have watched the demo on the disc, but that would be too easy) were selectable.
Cool. I could watch the 2008 Daytona 500 from 6 different drivers on-board cameras or the television broadcast version. Plus, it has the team audio to boot!
The DVD main menu lets you select which ten-lap segment you want to watch. Different segments let you view the race from different drivers.
The second disc includes alot of vintage race footage and a round table discussion of former Daytona 500 winners. Leading the discussion are Darrell and Michael Waltrip in classic DW and Mikey style. Daytona 500 winning drivers featured include: David Pearson, Bobby Allison, Junior Johnson, Mario Andretti, Pete Hamilton, Marvin Panch & Buddy Baker.
It’s a fascinating thing to watch the action as its narrated by the men who were there making Daytona 500 history.
If you’re not the winner of one of these few free copies, I suggest laying out the cash to buy your own. You will definitely enjoy it!”
