I believe that the actual race coverage itself was pre-empted by CBS due to a conflicting sporting event that day, but I don't know what it was.

That tends to explain while you only see snippets of the race instead of the whole thing.

I think there's only footage of the beginning and end instead of the whole race.

Yeah, that seems to be the case:

There are there are four different versions of this race that exist and as far as anyone knows no full version video. There is 35 minute NBC condensed video. There is an hour and fifteen minute satellite raw feed version. There is a Winston 500 DVD which places the MRN audio over top the race which I believe is the version above.  Last but not least there is a full audio version of the race that MRN broadcast if you are lucky enough to find it.
