Brad Andres, a young and handsome Harley-Davidson rider, scored an impressive victory in the 200-Mile beach-road race at Daytona Beach. Andres scored his second victory in the grueling Classic with a skillful ride over the rough, windswept and crowded 4.1-mile course. His previous 200 victory was in 1955, when he was only 18 years old. This year’s 200 miler was one of the most thrilling and hard fought races in the 22-year history of the Daytona Classic. Andres admitted that “the backstretch had never been so rough.” Strong northeast winds buffeted the riders on the beach straightaway and pushed the waves up onto the beach, leaving it soggy. The 14,000 spectators were amazed at the power-packed competition. This marks the fifth year in a row that a Harley-Davidson rider won the 200, and the second consecutive H-D win in the 100 thanks to victor Bill Scott. The first five places in the 200 went to H-D riders—Andres, Dick Mann, Tony Murquia, Jack Gholson and Bobby Sir Kegian. Eight of the first 10 finishers in the 100 relied on Milwaukee power. Truly a most impressive showing for Harley-Davidson.
