I agree with the other reviewers that this is a must for all Jeff Gordon fans and an informative piece for other nascar fans. Love him or hate him, Jeff Gordon changed nascar forever. A lot of the newer additions to the sport would not have made it if Jeff had not first paved the way. 5 stars.

Unparalleled Access to Mr. Gordon

"From what I am reading, and what I am hearing inside the industry, this documentary will provide unparalleled access to Jeff. As I understand it, Jeff allowed the camera crews to follow him just about everywhere - into the team hauler for pre-race pep talks, inside the compound at Hendrick Motorsports, aboard his private jet, into business meetings with his sponors and on and on. This is a unique chance for all of us fans to get to know the real Jeff, both on and off the track.
The show is narrated by Patrick Dempsey, and contains a host of celebrity interviews ranging from Rick Hendrick and Ray Evernham to Jay Leno and Wayne Gretzy. This is really cool!
The TV version will air on TNT right before the Pepsi 400 on July 7th. But, the DVD version contains a lot more footage.
Gordon fans will love this."

"I happen to be a big Jeff fan, and have been
since he started. This video is good for the
fact that it shares a little of his day to day
activities, and some personal downtime, and a
little about his business.
As far as racing moments, could have been a lot
better. Like the title says it is kinda' 24 hours
with Jeff, although I didn't come away sure that
most of it was filmed in ONE 24hr period.
If you want his career highlights and a lot of
racing action, this is probably not going to
satisy you. I'm sure the best of that is yet to
Picture quality is subpar, I thought the lighting
and look was a little on the dark side.
I still liked it, but probably not his best DVD."

"A big fan of NASCAR I looked forward to this take on the behind the scenes of Jeff Gordon documentary. The DVD was fairly good, but seemed a little dry and slow in its delivery. As expected there are a lot of wonderful comments made about Jeff and his successes but it is taken a little too far and becomes repetitious. I think this DVD actually is somewhat of an injustice to Jeff and his accomplishments based simply on the way the thing is put together and delivered. Whether you're a Gordon fan or not, there is really nothing on this DVD that you don't already know or have seen. I would save your money until a better documentary comes out.
The 2 star rating is based entirely on the way this thing is produced and not on Jeff Gordon himself who as I mentioned is much more deserving than what this DVD delivers."
