Daytona native Marshall Teague won the NASCAR Grand National race on the 4


Sunday 10th February 1952

Daytona native Marshall Teague won the NASCAR Grand National race on the 4.1 mile beach and road course for the 2nd straight year. The scheduled 160 mile race ended 2 laps early due to an incoming tide. Teague led from lap 2, crossing the line 1 minute, 21 seconds ahead of Herb Thomas. Both were in identical Hudson Hornets owned and prepared by Teague. Teague wasn’t allowed to compete until he paid a $574.50 fine for driving in a non-NASCAR race in November 1951. The event also saw Joie Ray become the first black/Afro-American driver to compete in a GN race.
