Looks like fun. Thanks for sharing. But one rotten section and the fun could end rather abruptly. Or you get a real daredevil on the course who gets airborne and flies off the track. I'll bet that is what finally happened.

I heard that that is how board track motorcycle racing eventually ended in the early part of the last century. The wooden tracks were exposed to weather and would quickly deteriorate. Rotted sections would give way, leading to horrific accidents during races. Imagine hitting a pile of lumber at 90 mph. Ouch!
