Board track, or motordrome, racing was a type of motor sport, popular in the United States between the second and third decades of the 20th century, where competition was conducted on oval race courses with surfaces composed of wooden planks. Although the tracks most often used motorcycles, many different types of racing automobiles also competed, enough so as to see the majority of the 1920s American national championship races contested at such venues. By the early 1930s, board track racing had fallen out of favour, and into eventual obsolescence, due to both its perceived dangers and the high cost of maintenance of the wooden racing surfaces.However, several of its most notable aspects have continued to influence American motor sports philosophy to the present day, including: A technical emphasis on raw speed produced by the steep inclinations; ample track width to allow steady overtaking between competitors; and the development of extensive grandstands surrounding many of the courses.
