Sons of Speed / Daughters of Speed New Smyrna Speedway

It was a tough decision; I woke up Saturday morning at Daytona International Speedway about 7 hours before the 76th Daytona 200 thinking about the antique / vintage races at New Smyrna Speedway 12 miles away.  Should I actually miss the Daytona 200 to go see a ‘new’ race?  I had no idea what it would be like.  But I did know that I wanted to see 100 year old bikes actually being used.

Of course the tires and wheels were ‘new’.  The frames were replicas.  But the spirit was 100% board track;  no brakes, no suspension, no gear box and no clutches to be found on the track. Click Here to See More Photos and Read the Whole Article
