I remember seeing a photo somewhere of kids sticking their heads up through the holes of the broken boards of a board track. They were watching the cars and presumably ducked if one got close. A certain breed of lunatic.

I have seen that, too and thought it was Indy.

You are right, the gentleman seated with a camera is labeled "Black and Decker".

Thanks

Indy didn't have a board track. Here is a list of the board tracks in the US from that era. The picture looks like it has a fairly long straightaway so that rules out probably anything less than 1.25 miles. If you have a magnifying glass take a look at he signs and let us know what they say. It might not be a US race track.
