Rapid Roy Hall was a colorful driver in the charismatic early years of Beach-Road racing at Daytona. Three times he came home victorious on the demanding course, each time it was underscored by adventuresome exploits. Hall's mere arrival into the city of Daytona was exciting.
One time he drove from Atlanta to Daytona in less than six and a half hours, quite a feat considering there were no interstate highways back then.
Another time Hall drove into town & proceeded to spin do-nuts in the middle of Main Street, an exercise which earned him a free night's lodging in the "Crossbar Hotel".
Hall said he intended it that way, "Because the motel rates are too high in this town."
