So after so many generations of racing etown will be closing down the drag strip. Why? Idk but hopefully someone takes over the drag strip so we still can enjoy racing and spectating. I could go for some over priced cheese fries and a porkroll sammich with a 5 dollar bottle of water.
Smh smh

Very sad. I heard about it, but don't know much details on it.

Will there be hosting car shows or everything getting closed down?


Regards,

Mark

"Old Bridge Township Raceway Park will now be a storage area for Copart, an online vehicle auction, and services company, based in Dallas, Texas."

That's what happened. They're renting out the drag strip as storage for auction cars.

The drag strip is closed but the circuit and Motocross track is still open. I don't think there's really gonna be any more shows there. The only thing I'll be looking forward to are the Club Loose events.

sucks after decades and decades they would close the drag strip down for a parking lot. But then again i know the local ppl always complained about the noise. Which i would think it would be a no brainer why would you move next to a drag strip knowing it would have loud cars and trucks haha. But on the bright side im glad they will still have drifting since thats why i go to Etown majority of the time anyways..
