The Newark Velodrome was a bicycle track located on South Orange Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. It measured six laps to the mile, or 293 yards per lap. The track was built in 1907. The Newark Tornadoes of the National Football League also played several "home" games on the track's grassy infield, during the 1930 season, while the other "home" games were played at Newark Schools Stadium.


The Tornadoes played two NFL games at the Velodrome in 1930, both defeats for Newark. On October 19, the Brooklyn Dodgers beat the Tornadoes, 14-0; a week later on October 26, the Staten Island Stapletons downed Newark, 6-0.


The 1912 UCI Track Cycling World Championships were held in Newark. The event was sanctioned by the Union Cycliste Internationale, the world governing body for the cycling sport. The 1912 event was estimated to draw 20,000 fans, even though the seating capacity of the venue was just 12,500. Frank Louis Kramer won a gold medal at the venue that year.[1] Australian cyclist, Reggie McNamara set five world records from one to 25 miles at the velodrome in 1915, 1916 and 1917.


The Newark Velodrome closed in 1930 after its lease expired. It was demolished that same year.

The one-mile double century race, which was won by Frank L. Kramer, was the feature event of the bicycle races yesterday at the Newark Velodrome. After fifteen elimination heats and three semi-finals, Kramer, Alfred Grenda of Australia, and A. Perchicot of France were left to fight out the final, and the contest furnished all that the cycle fans could wish for in the way of spectacular riding.
