In April, 1920, Indian set 8 new world records for so-called
"standard-valve" motors. The racing version of the Powerplus
motor that was used to set these records was subsequently known as
the Indian "Daytona," for the beach race course where
the records were set. Throughout the 1920's, the
Springfield manufacturer built a variety of racers around their
record-setting, "Daytona," motor.
This Indian "Daytona" racer was originally owned by Sam Parriot
who raced it at Muroc Dry Lake in Southern California.
