WALL TOWNSHIP SPEEDWAY TO
COME ALIVE AGAIN FOR 2009 SEASON
After sitting idle through 2008, with the exception of the overwhelming
successful “Turkey Derby” race in late-November, Wall Township Speedway will
come alive again in 2009. The busy schedule will feature professional auto
racing and several types of “special events” that should offer everyone who
lives in or visits New Jersey something of interest.
Promoter Jim Morton, who led the resurrection of the famous third
mile paved oval late last year, is busy planning events and preparing the
varied schedule now.
“It is now official! Wall Township Speedway will be in operation
for the 2009 season,” Morton said. “I am working on a lot of things for this
year and I hope to have an official schedule out soon. Thanks to everyone
who helped last fall the facility is in the best shape it has ever been.
“It is now full speed ahead for the 2009 season!”
Although he is still working on his 2009 plans, Morton did mention
that he intends to open the track office in late February or early March.
For the auto racers and their fans, tentative plans call for early season
paid practice sessions before races are presented on selected weekends in
April and May. Several racing events will then be presented on selected
Saturday nights during the summer months before the annual Turkey Derby caps
off the season. Morton also mentioned that news will be coming out soon
about the return of the “Sunday Series” on the “inner oval” featuring
go-karts and other small car divisions.
In addition to the auto racing events, Morton is currently working
with various promoters in an effort to bring other “family friendly” shows
and events to the Wall Township stadium this season. Details will be
Wall Township Speedway is located on Route 34 in Wall Township ,
N.J. , just one mile north of Garden State Parkway exit 98 and Interstate
195 exit 35B. More information is available at
The speedway hotline, 732-681-6400, will be operational as soon as the
speedway office reopens for the season.
