Saw this one in 1973 and have wanted to see it again ever since.
3 March 2000 | by wrinkledSee all my reviews

This is for all you "Death Race" fans who want to see this movie one more time. It was re-released on VHS in 1986 under the title: "State of Division". Please Note: that the cover and description don't really match the original movie, but it is indeed "Death Race". The quality of the video / audio is iffy at best but it most certainly watchable. My understanding is that the movie is out of print (OOP) but I have found several copies. I paid a whopping 9 bucks for a new copy. Best of luck...
