Guy Frost’s Favorite Vanderbilt Cup Race Photo

Guy Frost, chairman of the Vanderbilt Centennial Celebrations, has selected this photo as his favorite Vanderbilt Cup Race image. Taken during the 1908 race, referee William K. Vanderbilt Jr. is seen discussing the action with retired driver Joe Tracy. Joe drove in three Vanderbilt Cup Races (1904, 1905 and 1906) and two American Elimination Races (1905 and 1906).

That Joe Tracy was a thoughtful man is shown by the fact that he was a RETIRED race driver in 1908.  He would live another half century and his grave is on Long Island.
