Experience the Thrill, Courtesy of Indian Motorcycle: Daytona International Speedway “Indian Motorcycle Spring Dash” – Saturday, March 16 To commemorate the 65 th anniversary of the dominating Daytona 200 beach race victory by Floyd Emde on a 1948 Indian Big Base Scout, Indian Motorcycle will be the title sponsor of the Daytona International Speedway Spring Dash on March 16, 2013. Floyd’s son Don also won the fabled Daytona 200, and in homage to his father’s tenacious flag-to-flag win on the original beach course Don built a tribute motorcycle to replicate the bike his father would have had on the starting line in 1948. This rare Big Base Scout will be at the Indian Motorcycle display at the Daytona Speedway and will lead the Spring Dash event on March 16 with Don Emde at the controls.
In the celebration of this legendary anniversary, Indian Motorcycle will give away chances to make every motorcyclist’s dream come true — an opportunity to ride their bike around the Speedway. Starting Wednesday, March 13, visit the Indian Motorcycle Store at 506 Main Street or the Indian Motorcycle display at Daytona Motor Speedway for more information and to enter for a chance to participate (1 pass per motorcycle is required / approximately 400 passes available).
