    Does anyone out there have any pictures or information of a drag strip that was operated outside of Pittstown, NJ (not too far from State Route 12) back in the late 50's early 60's? You can definitely see it on Google Maps; almost at the corner of County Rd. 615 and Rt. 12. This is rarely talked about. I don't think it was in operation for very long.

    I think there was one in the 60's in Vineland. Is that close ?

    Do a search on the thread "Stock S/S-F/S 1959 - 1966", there was discussion about that track there.

    Nah, that's way down in South Jersey. This track was Northwest of Flemington, not too awfully far from th e famous Flemington Speedway dirt track.

    Tried searching this thread, but all I got was a "syntax error." Crap.

    I grew up driving go carts and dirt bikes on that strip,it was abandoned in 1967,and a family bought the house that was next to it.It was one helluva driveway.Now the State owns it and its no trespassing completely covered by weeds.
