In its first time trial, in July of 1926, M.L."Curley" Fredericks
lapped the 1-1/4 mile Altoona (Pennsylvania) board track at 114 mph.
The following month, on the 1-1/4 mile Rockingham board track
at Salem, New Hampshire, Fredericks set the record for
the fastest speed (120.3 mph) that would ever be
attained by a motorcycle on a board track.
Both records were set on a 61 cubic inch
version of this motor.
