Visitors at the Ormond Hotel discussed the idea of an auto race on the beach. Alexander Winton had already built and driven a race car called the Bullet while Ransom E. Olds was manufacturing small two seaters and had sold a sightseeing bus in Ormond. Winton agreed to bring his car down and Olds said that he would build a suitable challenger. The two cars met and had identical speeds of 57 mph. It was fine sport and neither claimed victory.

The hurricane washed this eleven car special train off the track soon after reaching the stricken area. The train was trying to rescue 683 World War I veterans in a rehabilitation camp, of which around 250 died as a result of the hurricane. The veterans, a remnant of the Bonus Army that marched on Washington, were employed for highway construction in the federal work relief project.
