Ya see, whats old... is new again, for some of us anyway. Young men have returned to their roots, building cars and hopping up engines from yester year. It's a passion, no... it's a sickness!
Before the NHRA even existed, gents like Wally Parks were peeling fenders and hoods off early "Iron" to make automobiles and motorbikes more aero-dynamic, stream lined, and lighter! Hopping up engines, stuffing bigger V8's in smaller production bodies for the sake of going faster and pushing their limits on a weekly basis. We youth, are still doing it! Even if we are over 50 years of age, or just turned 18. It is a common plane between us as we learn along the way and push the envelope alway further.
Sure we could could move into the future and go faster, using fuel injection, A&M fittings and electronics, but it's the trill of the hunt for us. Finding the missing pieces of puzzles from days past. Immersing our selves in our own history and learning the progression of speed and how it all evolved. Yup, ...some of us are stuck in the past, and just want to stay here!
We scour our country for the right parts so we can preserve history. Because that is what this is, "living history". Want a dose? Then come attend a Motor Speedway event happening here at legendary Raceway Park. Think of it as the lost speedway!
Here at Motor Speedway, we only run Pre 1958 autos, and Pre 1965 bikes on the strip! Keeping our past time in check, and tradition paramount. We are sticklers for cars entering into our history lesson with the right parts. We have a special section just for these cars.
There is, however, plenty of parking for cars and bikes that don't fit into the "history zone". We have a Pre 64 section for cars and later bikes... it is always a car show at this drag strip! All cars are welcome too, stockers, modifieds, choppers, etc. We do allow later cars on the strip if they are cars that may have run in the later 60's. We just don't want beat up stockers painted to look like hot rods. A straight axle Gasser of a later year is more then welcome! We just try and limit some later cars so the strip is filled with radical stuff of days past. That doesn't mean we won't let two stockers go at it either.
Again, it is a bit of a history lesson, ...not just a drag strip!
Many drag strips don't have such standards, but we aim to keep the old days alive and well while honoring our "Hot Rod" forefathers. Come check it out!
You'll here old time music; jump blues raw soul, early R&R, doo-wop, and more! We play all the swinging numbers, ...on vinyl too! Even our record player is vintage... Dig it man! And don't forget the "live" music as well, yup... we bring the "Mojo".
Come see a movie on the "Big Screen", yup, ...the big screen! We are saving New Jersey one weekend at a time with our old time movies on our bonified Drive-In-Movie screen! Two features a night on our Friday evenings events, "Hollywood Nights". Movies start at dark! See lots of hot rod havoc, creature features, or two wheeled mayhem! Just tune in those radios, listen, and watch. Motor Speedway has it all!
Help our history stay alive, bring a kid to a car show!
