Cobe Cup Race1800 viewsThis map shows the route of the 1909 Cobe Trophy Race, a total of 23.37 miles from Crown Point to Cedar Lake and on to Lowell, then back to Crown Point via Indiana 55, the old "Nine-Mile-Stretch," so named at the time of the big race. National Guard soldiers were stationed at over 40 spots along the route. Nine telegraph stations were well-spaced along the raceway and relayed news about the race to spectators in the grandstands. Two corners shown on the east side of Lowell are now the Lowell cemetery road.
