NATIONAL 250-MILE BEACH ROAD RACE

Due to the removal of International Speed Trials
to Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, this event has been developed

to substitute for the trials. A fifty-lap race, over a five--

I-ile course, for bona fide stock car entries, was-run under

the Contest Board of the American Automobile Association, the

first .time Sunday, March 8, 1936. Sand hazards on beach ap-

proaches and a cleani straightway run on the beach made a very

interesting departure from the orthodox track events.. This

is to be an annual affair, sponsored by. the Daytona Beach -

Volusia County Racing Association, and is run over the

vicinity of the original measured mileof the old Inter-

national Speed Trials, located about one mile south of the

Silver Beach approach on either the Beach or OceaniShore Blvd.

Dates are optional with committees in charge, etc. A $5000.00

purse was offered for 1936 events.

THE STATE WIDE REGATTA

This event, reported held during the first week

in July, has been abandoned.
