About the Detroit Gold Cup: The APBA Gold Cup, also known as the APBA Challenge Cup, is among the most prestigious of motorsport trophies, in part because it is the oldest active trophy in all of motorsports. The trophy was first awarded in 1904! In comparison, the first Indianapolis 500 race was held in 1911 and their Borg-Warner trophy was first awarded in 1936.
