Fort Dix Speedway -  Plumsted Twp., NJ
(aka: Central Jersey Speedway)

 

Fort Dix Speedway (aka: New Egypt Speedway) was built as a dirt track in the 1950's and paved in the 60's. The Fort Dix name gave way to New Egypt Speedway, then later Central Jersey Speedway before continuous yearly action stop in the 1980's. The track would open back up occasionally, lastly for a short season in the early 1990's.

 

Rick Grosso bought the old New Egypt paved track from the Grabac family in the mid 90's. At first many East Windsor Speedway racers would make the drive down route 539, as New Egypt now once again offered area fans two nights of dirt track racing as the Flemington Fair Speedway was paved in 1991.

 

The speedway was enlarged and reconfigured three times under the Grosso family, to end up a small 1/2-mile "D" shaped clay speedway that would once again be in continuous operation since 1998.

 

Bill Miscoski & Fred Vahlsing then purchased the speedway from the Grosso's, and after their second season, put down new red clay and widened the speedway. New Egypt is currently a 7/16-mile speedway. In 2013, Fred Vahlsing became sole-owner of New Egypt Speedway.

 

New Egypt Speedway was the last dirt speedway in New Jersey that featured DIRT Modifieds, and both of the World of Outlaw touring series.

 

Many great drivers have competed over the years at New Egypt Speedway, such drivers included: Ray Evernham, Jimmy Spencer, John Blewett and Tony Siscone to name just a few. More information may also be found at NJ Racing Nostalgia.

 

Some of the speedway's paved records are now being posted.
