Informational meeting scheduled to organize the Flemington Speedway Racing Historical Society
Life-long speedway fan and former official announces plans for formation of Historical Society to “Preserve, Protect, and Document the History of the Flemington Speedway and Fairgrounds.

Ringoes, NJ, August 23, 2009 – The Flemington Fair Speedway closed its’ doors in 2000.  It was a speedway that raced weekly from 1955 until that time garnering national attention for its exciting racing presentations. 

Since the speedway property has closed and been turned into the site of a shopping center, the Flemington Fair Speedway has retained its place in history as “Modified Country USA”.  Memories of this great speedway were witnessed again today at the second annual Flemington Fair Race Car Show.

Bill Hanna, who grew up in Three Bridges, NJ and is a life-long fan of the speedway and former official, announced today plans to keep the heritage and history of the Flemington Fairgrounds Speedway alive for generations to come.

On Tuesday October 27th at 7:30 PM, at the Spruce Run VFW Memorial Post located at 179 Main Street in Glen Gardner, NJ – a short distance north from the former speedway site will be the inaugural informational meeting to establish the “Flemington Speedway Racing Historical Society”.  The purpose of this organization will be to Preserve, Protect and Document the history of the Flemington Speedway and Fairgrounds.

It will be an open forum meeting where all ideas are welcome as well as ideas already discussed among other supporters will be made public.  It is the hope that the weekly experience that simply was called “Flemington” can by preserved and enjoyed by future generations.

If at all possible a RSVP is requested if you would plan to attend this first historic meeting by contacting Bill @ flemspdwyrhs@verizon.net or contacting by phone at 610-258-8248.
