Racing: Daytona Beach 1949

Video clip from home movies taken in 1949 of motorcycle racing on Florida's Daytona Beach. This was before the construction of the Daytona Speedway and both automotive and motorcycle racing was done using the beach and highway adjacent to the beach...

Note the lack of homes and condos in 1949. Also note at the end of the video a cyclist is injured and they have to remove him using a stretcher. Video courtesy of Mario Levetto.
