Air Service Racer Wins Pulitzer
The first Air Service racer, a Verville-Packard 600, originally designated the VCP-1 when built in 1919. It was dedesignated the VCP-R in 1920.
It won the 1920 Pulitzer at Mitchel Field, Long Island, in November with Lt. C. C. Moseley at its controls. It was also flown by Major "Shorty" Schroeder in the Gordon Bennett race in Paris in 1920 but an overheated engine forced the pilot to land before the race was completed.
