The vast majority of spectators to the Vanderbilt Cup Races of Long Island from 1904 to 1910 came from New York City. They utilized every mode of transportation available including; trains, automobiles, horses, trolleys and trucks which were the precursors to buses.
On Wednesday night, I will be presenting "The Vanderbilt Cup Races, the Motor Parkway and Trucks" at the Long Island Chapter of the American Truck Historical Society. The presentation will be held at the Sound Beach Fire Department beginning at 7:30 PM. For more information contact Dennis Ryan at 1-631-82
