This is an interesting find. It is a 1940 article from the Hagerstown paper about a wreck at Berkeley Springs. This is a track not listed in Allan Brown's book

I just found this one by mistake. It is not in Allan Brown's great book on former speedways. This is the Lido Island Airport Jalopy Track in Florida from 1939.

I also found an article about a Mystery Ship Jalopy track in Florida and that too is not in the book.
