1910 Vanderbilt Cup Race

The last William K. Vanderbilt Jr. Cup Race held on Long Island

Location: Nassau County, Long Island, New York
Date: October 1, 1910

The Vanderbilts of 1909 and 1910 were Stock-Car contests and the last of the great Cup Series on Long Island. The classic-phase passed from the Nassau County roads to Savannah where the lingering "old-school exponents" race the pure thorobreds for America's Grand Prize. Furthermore, to insure opportunity for all, these last Cup Races were supplemented with minor contests for the smaller machines and in all classifications there were strict limitations of engine size. It is doubful if Mr. Vanderbilt anticipated this turn of affairs when deeding the Cup five short years before.
