Determining the 25 most memorable Winston Cup races of all time was no easy task and Steet & Smith's NASCAR Scene surveyed an expert panel of NASCAR journalists and broadcasters to narrow the field. The responsibility of listing the races 1-25 then fell to the editors of NASCAR Scene.

Bill Elliott\'s $1 million victory in the 1985 Southern 500 or Richard Petty\'s drought-breaking win in the 1979 Daytona 500? Michael Waltrip capturing the checkered flag in the 2001 \"Black Sunday\" Daytona 500 - better remembered as Dale Earnhardt\'s final race - or Harry Gant\'s unforgettable comeback in the 1991 Goody\'s 500?
Let the arguments begin.

Thunder and Glory: The 25 Most Memorable Races in NASCAR Winston Cup History by the editors of NASCAR Scene captures in vivid photographs and detailed race summaries the most spectacular moments in the 32-year span during which Winston sponsored the world\'s premier form of motorsports. Accompanying Thunder and Glory is an exclusively-produced, hour-long DVD documentary that is not available in any stores that provides fans with a researched history of the sport\'s genesis.

From 1972-2003, NASCAR Winston Cup racing grew from a regional phenomenon to a mainstream, national sport followed by 75 million Americans and now ranks second among all major sports in television viewership. During that span, generations of drivers - Dale Earnhardt and son Dale Earnhardt Jr, Richard Petty and son Kyle Petty among others - thrilled generations of fans. Each of the 25 races chronicled in Thunder and Glory have unique storylines ranging from national icons like Jeff Gordon and Cale Yarborough pocketing milestone victories to little-known drivers like Ron Bouchard and Kevin Harvick shocking the sports world with career-making wins.
One of the greatest aspects of sports is the ongoing debate between fans defending their favorite athlete, venue or event. Thunder and Glory provides the most convenient, detailed and visually-stunning grounds for debating the greatest races ever.

Whether your favorite driver is named Earnhardt, Petty, Allison, Waltrip or Labonte you\'ll find them all in Thunder and Glory along with many others in their most unforgettable moments.
