    Default Best Board Track Article

    I think this is the best article about board track racing yet. It pulls no punches. It tells it from a different angle. Not from
    the view of promoters or manufacturers. To think that in 1913 they thought wearing silk underpants under leather pants
    would turn a splinter is amazing. Enjoy! From the August 1913 Technical World Magazine.

    Th upload got the pages out of order but I think if you just hold your mouse over the page before you click on it it will give you the page number.

    Pem, I recently posted an article on the big Motordrome crashes at Newark, NJ., and Ludlow, KY. on my Deadly Dave's Blog.

    Dale, I have been trying to post a enlarged copy of page 3 with no luck. Of course it's the best page. I'll keep trying.
    Dave, I will definitely check out your page. Thanks

    I was really grooving until I got to that "miniature" page. I've had that happen before Dick. It's a real thorn in the side. The other three pages were pretty cool!
