February 18, 1979

The very first NASCAR race broadcast on live national TV. The 1979 Daytona 500.

It featured a final lap crash from the two lead cars (Exciting!), a win by the King Richard Petty (Great for Casual Fans!), and a fist fight between the drivers of the two lead cars involved in the final lap crash (Oops!)

All in all, not really putting their best foot forward.
