Englishtown, NJ, March 10, 2017- Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey will open its motocross racing season on March 19th. The 2017 season marks the 42nd year that the facility has hosted motocross racing events.
The iconic facility in central New Jersey has hosted a wide variety of activities on the premises. The facility contains both a ⅛ and ¼ mile drag strip, multiple motocross tracks, and a road course popular with the drifting community. Since the early 1970’s motocross has been a staple at Raceway Park. Over the years, virtually all of the elite riders in the sport have turned a wheel on the Raceway Park track.
Following the March 19th opener, the track will host an additional 11 events for all two wheel classes. Most of the events will pay track and district points towards year end championships.
The Regional Qualifier at the beginning of June will be the first time in the 42 year history of the track that a Regional Qualifier will take place at Raceway Park. Raceway Park will host the Northeast Youth Regional Qualifier for the AMA Amateur National Championship where riders qualifying out of that event will punch their tickets to the AMA Amateur Nationals held each year at Loretta Lynn’s Dude Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN for a chance at a National Championship.
