History & History Related Items

Daytona Beach Shores history:

Daytona Beach Shores is a fairly young community. It was organized in 1960 by business leaders who felt a smaller community would provide better services to residents. Incorporation came about on 22 April 1960. The city limits go from Wilbur-by-the-Sea (an unincorporated community) to the south and Daytona Beach to the north.

Here is a good history page for Daytona Beach Shores.

The racing tradition began early on here. The hard-packed sand of the local beaches seemed to be perfect for testing out "just how fast" those new autos could go. First to try was Fred Marriot in 1907 who raced at a top speed of 197 mph setting a land-speed record! Bear in mind this was only 11 years after Ford built the first car which topped out at 20 mph. More famous, though, was Malcolm Campbell, who, in his car, the Bluebird, broke the land-speed record four times. He last raced at Daytona in 1935, reaching 277 mph. Beach racing continued for many years until the Daytona International Speedway was built in 1959 by Bill France.
