This DVD does contain the full race coverage (it isn't only 1-1/2 hour long, it is much longer) and it's really worth the price.

Great classic of a great race. First start to finish filming of the Daytona 500. Benny Parson's carrying the first ever in car camera around the track. It brought back a lot of memories of when I watched the race live on TV. Naturally the fight at the end of the race which propelled NASCAR to front page news. Joe Mesnzer's book "The Great American Gamble - How the 1979 Daytona 500 Gave Birth to a NASCAR Nation" is what turned me on to trying to purchase this DVD. You can still see the front end of Donnie Allison and Cale Yarborough's cars on display at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC.

This is the full TV broadcast (without the commercials). So if you want to see a race as it was originally broadcast and not edited features...this is what you want. There are some sporting events you want to keep and that are worth watching again. This is the best way to accomplish that.
