Daytona 1948

LIFE Magazine featured some of the most prolific and exemplary photos of Americana during its tenure. Here is a sample of photography from the 1948 Daytona Beach Races. Note the commentary is accurate and interesting for each photo, most of which were never printed. Final photo depicts the late great Floyd Emde, winner of the 200 mile main event on his 1948 Indian Big Base Scout, the last year Indian won at Daytona. Enjoy:
