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