     FLEMINGTON, NJ Memories last forever!

     Long-time auto racing enthisiast John Mondelli, along with his close friend Lance Ruban, are currently in the plans of making sure of that fact. They are in the midst of putting together the first of its kind Flemington Fair Speedway Rolling Museum.


     This endeavor by both Mondelli and Ruban is being put together to bring back the many fond memories of the racing action that once existed at the historic Flemington Fair Speedway that closed its gates for good back in 2000 for the public to enjoy. From that day on Mondelli has strived hard to collect as much memorbilia recalling what once existed there.


     That has led to vast of array of items from the famed Flemington based track such as signs, result stories, cancelled checks, pictures, racing programs and so much more. The Rolling Museum will also be pulled by a truck that at one time was used to pace the races at Flemington. It is widely known that Mondelli now owns the largest array of memorbilia that now exists from what use to be the Flemington Fair Speedway.


     This latest venture by Mondelli, who prior had been the founder of the now very successful Flemington Speedway Historical Society along with the popular vintage race car show that is part of the Hunterdon County 4-H Fair each year, should make its debut over the summer months of 2012.


     He plans to make this Flemington Speedway Rolling Museum available for display at all speedways, malls, schools, trade and race car shows or wherever it is in demand. Further details on this are available by contacting Mondelli at 908-721-8183.


     At the fast approaching 5th annual Dirt Track Heroes Show, that is set to take place at the spacious Phillipsburg, NJ Mall starting on Sunday March 4th and continuing through Saturday, March 10th,  Mondelli and Ruban are also in the midst of putting together a big racing tribute. That will be directed towards the late Flemington Fair Speedway standout Billy Cannon. A display will cover a lot of the outstanding Cannon racing career, including a Billy Cannon tribute car owned by Gary Bauer.
