Daytona Winner Brad Andres

Can you imagine piloting this machine to over 120 miles per hour on the beach.  Thats just what Brad Andres did when he recorded the fastest ever Daytona 200 qualifying run of 126 miles per hour in 1956. 

This photo was taken in 1959, just after Brad captured his second of three Daytona 200 victories.  Brad was the only rider to win three times on the beach course, recording victories in 1955, 59 and 60.  His father (and tuner) Leonard Andres stands at his sides.  Leonard tuned an amazing seven Daytona winning machines throughout his illustrious career.
