  1. David, there was a reenactment of the 1904 race done in 2004. The recreated CDO Olds was part of it driven by a friend of ours, does that count?

  2. The last race on the beach was south of the pictured location in 1958. Beach racing was
    done in what is now known as Daytona Beach Shores and Wilbur by the Sea.
