There's no name in racing that has anywhere near the reach of Petty. And this week sees the release of the DVD of "Petty Blue," a comprehensive look at the four generations of Pettys -- Lee, Richard, Kyle and Adam -- who all competed in NASCAR. Here, dig on a preview:
Petty Blue was produced in a joint effort between NASCAR Media and CMT Media Group, the folks responsible for the previous documentaries "Dale" and "The Ride of Their Lives."
Narrated by Kevin Costner, the documentary was made with the Pettys' complete cooperation. The title refers to that famous color blend that was created by accident and became a worldwide symbol. Special features include interviews with David Pearson, Bobby Allison and many others.
The DVD is on sale now for $19.99, and if you're too cheap to buy it, you can see it on CMT on Oct. 8. It's well worth catching.
