they are trying to shutdown englishtown raceway!!!

This is an announcement from Raceway Park's web site.
For those of you who don't know - Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ is one of the top tracks in the Northeast Tri-State Area. I'm sure most of the drag racers on this board have been down this track and even call this track their home track.
I know I will be at this meeting prepared to voice my opinion!
http://www.racewaypark.com for more info
ATTENTION RACEFANS:
Raceway Park needs your help and support!!!
On Thursday August 5th, a Public Meeting is being held to discuss the noise levels that affect the residents of Manalapan and Englishtown. Monmouth County Assemblymen Michael J. Panter and Robert L. Morgan will discuss their recent legislation proposal to remove the Motor Vehicle Racetrack Exemption from the Noise Control Act of 1971. This exemption is what makes it possible for racetracks of all types to operate unmuffled vehicles. This move would be devastating to Raceway Park, and could set off a number of changes the way racetracks operate both here in our area and all over the state. Founded in 1965, long before the wave of housing developments that now dominate our area, Raceway Park has remained a place for motorsport enthusiasts of all kinds to come and enjoy the sports they love. Raceway Park has been able to stay open these many years based largely in part on the vocal support of the many local race fans who have helped us to fend off these attacks in the past.
We now ask for that support again, so that we may silence those who oppose Raceway Park once and for all. The meeting is open to the public and will take place on Thursday August 5th at 7:00 PM in Manalapan Township at the Monmouth County Library Headquarters located at 125 Symmes Rd. The library is a mere 1/4 mile from the corner of Route 9 and Symmes Rd. and very easy to access. If you are unable to attend, please contact Assemblymen Panter and Assemblymen Morgan at 732-741-5599 and voice your opinion. You may also fax your thoughts to 732-741-0012 or contact them via email at [email protected] or [email protected]. If you e-mail, please copy Raceway Park at [email protected]. You can send a letter to them at New Jersey General Assembly, Legislative Office, The Galleria, 2 Bridge Avenue, Bldg. 2, Red Bank, New Jersey 07701. Please come out and support Raceway Park, the home of fast family fun for over 40 years and for many years to come.

A petition for Englishtown Raceway Park has been started, which will be sent to the people making this “wrong” decision, before the town meeting. Please take the little time it takes to sign the petition and to give them a call to voice your opinion.
Feel free to copy and paste this URL to all places. Thanks.

I HATE when people move right next door to something like a racetrack and then say it's too noisey and want to shut it down. You didn't know it was going to be noisey when you looked at the house before you bought it? Christ!!!

thats exactly the problem. they move into an area with something like this, complain and then want it torn down. they should have moved somewhere that was already quiet.

Yeah. *******. We're still trying to get the Bridge open after all the years. Unsuccessfully, but trying.

Post this on Grassrootsmotorsports.com's and SCCA'a board as well.

That happend out here to the only roadcourse in the southeast side of the state. The track was there WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY before the houses. The home owners sued the track and caused them to inforce strict sound limits and only be allowed to run a limited schedual. People are just retarted. The worst part is a homeowner was cutting his grass while the sound meter for the track was on and his mower exceeded the sound limit lol...

It's a shame that the outcome looks to affect all tracks operating in the state of NJ. The way I figure it is if you move by an existing racetrack or airport you can't complain about the noise. I live 500 yards from the end of a runway.

This issue has received a lot of national attention. It was on Windtunnel (SPEED channel) last week.

it's like building an airport and having people moving closer and closer to it the complaining the airplanes are too loud.

Well no ****, no one told you to move next to an airport or raceway. What a bunch of morons

Damn, I grew up in NJ and me and my dad went to the summer nationals every summer, as well as well as different IHRA and other events. I'm in the military and I don't live around there any more, but I will definately send some emails.
