The American #16 Packard “Gray Wolf” Taking the Massapequa Turn

The sleek 30-hp #16 Packard “Gray Wolf” was a dirt-track car designed by its driver Charles Schmidt. The first Packard racer had previously set one-mile and five-mile records in January 1904. An American Mutoscope and Biograph cameraman captured the “Gray Wolf” taking the second major turn on the course from Massapequa-Hicksville Road to the Bethpage-Hempstead Turnpike.
