Happy Birthday...Paul

Paul Goldsmith...10/2/1925

Paul Goldsmith was one of the leading motorcycle racers during the late 1940s through the mid-1950s. The Michigan riderís most famous of five AMA national victories came at the Daytona 200 in 1953 aboard a Harley-Davidson. After retiring from motorcycle racing, Goldsmith went on to a very successful automobile racing career. He won the final NASCAR race run on the beach at Daytona Beach in 1958. He also competed several times in the Indianapolis 500, finishing third in 1960.

Born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, on October 2, 1925, Goldsmith moved with his family to Detroit when he was a teenager. He first started riding motorcycles after World War II and almost immediately began racing. He found early on that he had a natural talent for racing.
