Joe Leonard (98) leads the pack into the first turn at the start of the 1962 Daytona 200. This was Leonard’s final appearance in the race before he moved on to his auto racing career. Carroll Resweber moved by Leonard to take the lead, but when the motor blew on Resweber’s Harley-Davidson it was Leonard back in the lead. Unfortunately another rider had collided with Leonard during the warm-up lap and broken a screw on his bike’s chain adjuster. Eventually that problem would put Leonard out of the race. Don Burnett would go on to win the race, just nipping a late-charging Dick Mann at the line.
