We’ve told you before about the startup group that’s dedicated itself to the history of the Flemington Speedway in New Jersey, which hosted its first automobile race in 1915 and its last in 2000. With four actual corners that gave it tremendous speed, Flemington’s dirt layout, and the action thereon, was mythic.
Neither the speedway, nor the fairgrounds it stood on, still exist, done in by sprawl’s effect on New Jersey land values. But the Flemington Speedway Historical Society will be hosting two retrospectives at the Hunterdon County 4-H and Agricultural Fair on Route 179 in Lambertville, New Jersey. On Thursday, the society will host a roundtable and trivia contest at 7 p.m. Then on Sunday, at least two dozen racers have confirmed their attendance at an autograph session, led by 1970s legends Stan Ploski and Ken Brenn Jr. Society memberships are $25.
