A Hudson At Sheepshead Bay

Dan Hickey and his mechanic Earl Case pose for a picture while they were testing their Hudson racing car, at the Sheepshead Bay Track just outside of New York City. Racing was held there on the two and a half-mile banked wooden oval, which was owned by a group of investors between 1915 and 1919 when it closed. After the track closed in 1919 the property was sold and developed into residential real estate.
