Fairmount Park 1908

One of the great road course races of the early 20th Century was held at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. These articles discuss its first running in 1908. The first two articles are from Motor Age and are pretty extensive. They deserve more analysis than I have given to date. I intend to fix that soon. Don't let the brevity of this analysis lead you to believe there is not much here. Also, check out my analysis and primary reasearch for the 1909 Fairmount race.
Attachment VCR110108 contains a short item published on November 11 that reports that Firestone Tire & Rubber Company awarded trophies to both Locomobile drivers, George Robertson (the winner) and Jm Florida, for their performances in the Fairmount Park race. W.R. Walton of Philadelphia is reported to be the executive representing Firestone at the presentation.
