Daytona 200, 1948--Racing on the Beach Captured by LIFE

In our Inbox arrived this link to 22 LIFE Magazine photos from the sands of Daytona Beach, taken more than 60 years ago. Included is race-winner Floyd Emde and a shot of a fellow crashing a Norton, plus other great time-capsule images capturing the spirit of the times. Shot by Joseph Schersche, some of these black and white photos had never been previously published.
