Well that's it 2018 no Englishtown!!!!!

Track has been there since 1965 and now it will be a parking lot to store new cars.

I guess to many residence complaining about the noise and traffic.

Maybe they should have researched the area before buying a house.

I am so sick of these primadonna b@%#&$s ruining the working mans fun!!

Yup it finally happened. Been on the verge for years. I think I made my last runs there in 2006 and then you COULD NOT even start an open header car before 10 am or the cops would be called.

I heard the Summernationals were supposed to be there in June? I guess that's cancelled. Historic track, that's for sure!

It's not gone, they're just ceasing drag racing operations. Everything else will remain. Personally, even though I hate to say it, I give it two years before they have to close...

It's been a few days since I got the news about etown. In the past, when the senior Napps had reached out to regular ticket holders for moving the mational event to May, or to write letters to politicians. This time,nothing. I personally think there is something else. Don't wanna start rumors, but thats what I think.

Its all about the money. I hate that place. they sold out to COPART and are going to lease it to them. still sad to see the best track in NJ go. All the time me and my dad spent there.

They thought they were going to get rich through COPART and let their drag racing permit expire, now they can’t get a new permit. They should have worked to keep the racing permit active in case COPART deal fell through.
