Elgin National Road Race Pennants


In late August between 1910 and 1915, then again in 1919, 1920 and 1933, the Elgin National Road Races were held on variations of an 8.5 mile circuit on the west side of town. The events drew huge crowds of thrill seekers to witness the great drivers of the early days of auto racing compete at high speeds on public roads. The gravel track required an estimated 50,000 gallons of oil to keep the dust down and local farmers sold tickets, concessions and lodging to the thousands of spectators who flocked to that industrial town west of Chicago for 2 days of death defying action.
Over the years, Elgin National Road Races drew such names as Barney Oldfield, Eddie Rickenbacker, Ray Harroun, Ralph DePalma, Tommy Milton, Fred Frame and Ralph Mulford to compete for the Tiffany designed solid silver Elgin National Cup.

Memorabilia from the Elgin National Road Races is extremely rare, as you might imagine, so we are very pleased to offer this pair of century old Official Pennants from the 1910 and 1913 Elgin National Road Races.

Wednesday Afternoon Update:

More importantly, so is the air conditioning.

There’s a big generator parked behind Suite L humming away while they repair whatever exploded out there yesterday. We expect to maintain regular hours for the rest of the week.

Please note, we will be closed the next two Saturdays.


About 1pm Tuesday, we lost most of our electrical power after hearing a BOOM outside the 5120 Belmont Building. Commonwealth Edison says they will have it fixed by 7pm, so we have called it a day. We were unable to ship anything today but I’ll be checking email throughout the afternoon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
