Default Some Daytona racing history

So I was at ponce inlet just south of Daytona this weekend which is the old location of the south turn when NASCAR was raced on the beach during the 50's. I looked on youtube and found some videos, I thought it was pretty awesome to see how it used to be done, makes me kinda wish I was born during that period

The light house you see in this pic that i took is the same one in the top right corner of the old picture

And here's a video of the motorcycle racing that they held on the same course. Really wish I could have seen this in person

I wouldn't say it sucks now, but it has definitely come a long way from what it used to be
