The Vanderbilt Cup Race Fantasy Team

Wiliam K. Vanderbilt Jr loved competitive sports and was a member of his St. Mark's Preparatory School's football team (first row, far right).

In honor of Willie K.'s love of football, here is my Vanderbilt Cup Race Fantasy Team of drivers, mechanicians, officials and fans.

PS. After three years of trying, tomorrow I will be playing in the Super Bowl of my family's 14-team fantasy football league against my daughter Dana.  Best of luck Dana!
