“115 Years of Racing” current exhibition at the MacDonald House Museum and Welcome Center
Exhibit runs February 1, 2018  – May 1, 2018

Ormond Beach is the Birthplace of Speed! 115 years ago, on March 26, 1903 people gathered here on the beach for the sole purpose of competing and viewing a meet that contained only two pure racing cars. The first annual Ormond-Daytona Beach Automobile Races, March 26-28, 1903 were held just south of what is now the Granada Boulevard beach ramp. A one-mile course was laid out headed south, and the meet began with the first official automobile racing event ever held on the beach.

The Ormond Beach Historical Society is honored to preserve and present this legacy in a temporary exhibit highlighting the activities of the “1st Speed Week.” The exhibit includes black and white photographs and artifacts from the first race(s).
