MIAMI, FL — Late-1920s: The remains of Fulford-Miami Speedway after it was destroyed by a Category 4 hurricane on September 17, 1926. The track was a 1.25-mile banked board track built by Carl F. Fisher, who had previously built the Indianapolis (IN) Motor Speedway. The track was designed by 1911 Indy 500 winner Ray Harroun. The only race at the track was held on February 22, 1926, and was won by Peter DePaolo in the same Duesenburg that he had driven to victory in the 1925 Indianapolis 500. Note that the car and driver names from that lone race can still be seen painted along the inside front stretch wall. Much of the lumber from the speedway was later used to help rebuild the City of Miami. (Photo by ISC Images & Archives via Getty Images)
