Boardtracks were favored by motorsport race promoters because they were inexpensive to construct, but they weren’t durable and required a great deal of maintenance to remain usable. Most tracks lasted three years before being abandoned. California had seven boardtracks, Pennsylvania had three, New Jersey and Ohio had two, with Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Florida, Maryland, Missouri, and New York having one each. Motordromes ranged from a half-mile to two, the first built in Los Angeles in 1910. New Jersey’s Woodbridge Speedway was the last to shut down, in 1931.
