My husband is a 110% Dale Earnhardt Sr. fan and therefore we have many videos done about him as well as Nascar. This DVD was the most informative and complete video I have ever seen on Nascar. It was a tear-jerker. Incredible information on the history of Nascar and were it originated. I would certainly recommend this DVD and is a "must have" for anyone with the slightest bit of interest in stock car racing of any kind.

If you LOVE NASCAR then you will appreciate this documentary. I watched it on CMT and I will be buying it as soon as it comes available. It is exciting, funny, and very emotional. When it was over my husband and I both were choked up with the lump in our throats. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it is. Best I have ever seen in this category. It was put together very well and Kevin Costner did a very good job narrating.
