Check out the amazing color video of Pete Hamilton's win in 1970. Those Superbirds were truly beautiful machines.
Image quality varies from year to year, but overall, it is superb. This is a must-have for any NASCAR fan. One correction should be noted, however. This five-disc set contains just over six hours of material, not the 10 noted in Amazon.com's product infomation for this title.
Secondly the awful mind-numbing musical soundtrack that runs throughout is not only distracting but just plain irritating. Why was it even considered necessary to subject the viewer to this, what was wrong with the original commentary already in place? I was tempted to mute the sound altogether and just watch the action but this would result in too much valuable information being lost.
Thirdly and most alarmingly, why was the footage of Dale Earnhardt's fatal crash completely left out of the 2001 race highlights? This was screened repeatedly on television news services and sports shows around the world at the time and can still be seen on multiple websites. I fail to see how they could be seeking to protect sensitive viewers among us from the trauma or in fact paying homage to a dead champion. The crash itself looked tame in comparison to many already featured on these DVD's where drivers walked away unscathed. I in no way wish to diminish the memory of this great man but this is intended to be a historical document. This accident was the catalyst for massive changes in the way cars and driver aids such as neck restraints were utilized.Read more ›
