    I loved this video. I did not make it to Daytona until the mid 60s when they were no longer
    on the beach.
    One of the cooler parts of this video is when Cotton Owens made a pit stop and they poured
    water from a radiator bucket on the windshield and then Cotton turned the windshield
    wipers on to clear the windshield.
