Chalmers-Detroit at the Massapequa Turn

The #7 Chalmers-Detroit driven by William Knipper skidded through the Massapequa Turn just after the end of the Long Island Motor Parkway portion of the course. The building in the background was the Massapequa Lodge, one of the three toll lodges built in 1908 to collect fares when the public used the Motor Parkway. The banked turn was part of a temporary road built especially for the race to connect the exit of the Motor Parkway with northward bound Massapequa-Hicksville Road.
