SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
During the 2014 Speedweeks race fans can marvel at some of the legends of racing during a beachside historic race car parade at 1 p.m. Feb. 15 in Ponce Inlet.
Through a cooperative sponsorship between Volusia County Government, the Town of Ponce Inlet and Racing’s North Turn restaurant, the vintage race cars will once again run down Atlantic Avenue, making the south turn onto the world’s most famous beach, ending at the famed north turn.
These are the sites of the original north and south turns of the early 4.1-mile beach and road course where the Grand National Race ran from 1948 until 1958, when they were relocated to the new Super Speedway, today known as Daytona International Speedway.
Following the parade, Racing’s North Turn restaurant will host autograph sessions and interviews of drivers, including NASCAR Hall of Fame historian Buzz McKim.
