Vanderbilt Cup, 100 Years Ago Today


One hundred years ago today the penultimate William K. Vanderbilt Jr. Cup race on Long Island, New York was ran. After 1910, the race was organized in other cities across the United States. This was the latest date any of the Vanderbilt Cup Races ran on Long Island. Complicating matters was unseasonably cold temperatures described by those on hand as "December-like." Evidence of this was that the water hoses in the pit area were frozen solid when race officials arrived in the morning.
