Using his long experience in promoting, Slim Nelson got behind the race meet that was held at the Altmont track, ten miles out of Albany. Motorcycle champions and stars gave perfect cooperation. The result was a meet which was a credit to motorcycling, a credit to the Patroon Mounted Guards, and which paved the way to uniforms. Much credit for the success of the races goes to Harold E. Smith, owner of radio stations WABY and WOKO, who ran many announcements about the race during the 24 hours of each day that his stations are on the air. The races were broadcast over short wave, and many dignitaries, including James A. Wright Dwight Moody and Steve DuPont were interviewed.
