"East Windsor Speedway"

 

Construction began on October 29th, 1963, and pictured above was

Donald Jones, Sr., a Trentonian Newspaper Reporter, the head of

New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles, John Wyckoff, and the voice

of WCTC radio out of New Brunswick, Nat Klinefield.

 

East Windsor Speedway opened on June 11th, 1965 and closed on

August 23, 2002.

 

Below are photos of its demolition taken February 21, 2008

Finishing off the grandstands that were attached to the speedway's office

 

Once dismantled, the remains are moved to the dumpster for removal

 

Looking towards turn one from behind the rumble of the old grandstands

 

Looking down the old midway

 

With each "bite" decades of memories are removed

 

Looking at what is left of the fourth turn

 

The remaining grandstands from behind the remains of the restrooms

 

Turn four and down the front stretch with only the old base still piled

 

Old tear offs stuck in the roots of an uprooted tree

 

Turn three and the pit area

 

Looking down the backstretch towards the second turn

 

Looking down the pits towards the "waiting" housing project sales office

 

What is basically nothing but an "outline" of the old track

 

What is left of the old tower that stood at the top of the main grandstands

 

The cement backstretch wall still stands!

 

What is left of the flagman's stand

 

Backside of the main tower and novelty stand

 

Looking towards turn two with the old flag pole still standing

 

Pit road entrance to the pits from the track

 

Gone is the pile of "black gold" clay, but what remains was swampy

 

Sign of the times, and gone is "Racing Every Friday Night"
