Track welcome in Boardman

    An Eastern Oregon port district would welcome a NASCAR track on its 1,400 acres of sagebrush near the Columbia River town of Boardman.

    “This is a place that wants them,” Port of Morrow manager Gary Neal said. “It’s a great fit.”

    Backers first proposed Boardman, about 160 miles east of Portland, for a speedway about seven years ago, and several investor groups have offered plans to make it happen over the years. Groundbreaking has been tentatively set several times, the last in fall 2006, but has never taken place.
