    Amazing Race Footage From Daytona.....


    .....shot in 1920! The quality is equally amazing!

    Kudos to Bruce Richmond for digging this link up and posting it to the USCRA forums.

    Upon Further Research......

    .
    "Film shows 10mls amateur race, 10mls sidecar race and 100mls professional race featuring Teddy Carroll and - among many other stars - Gene Walker on 8 valve Indian.
    Film states this was at Daytona, which is a mistake because there are no records of a large board track in Florida. Most probably this was filmed at Sheepshead Bay, New York 2 mile board track on October 11th, 1919. Any help identifying location and date appreciated."

    The amount of lumber in that is crazy. Wonder what happens when it starts to rain on a board track? I bet that gets pretty greasy.
    Amazing clip. Those guys were hardcore. I can't imagine running those speeds wearing a leather 'helmet', open face at that. We're pussies.

    That board track is AMAZING. I always thought they were small small ovals... the 2 mile one in this video is impressive.

    All you need is some spare cash and a leather helmet and it looks like you'll be good to go with this baby
