"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"
