Yup.

Better question is, does anyone know how long Copart's lease is for? That would help weed thru some of the most recent rumors I've heard.
it was posted somewhere on YB, I want to say it was 15 yrs at $5MM per

It's my understanding that copart purchased that part of the land. No lease. just bought it outright for a lot of money

Not that I have a whole lot of hope for drag racing's imminent return to Englishtown, and I don't any knowledge of their future plans, but I do know this:
That photo from the above post is not the track being torn up. It is a section of the right hand lane wall being removed. Look closely, the racing surface is still there to the left. In addition, the tower is not coming down. The tower is where the R.P. business offices are now located.

back from the swap meet not looking good left side score board gone taken down right side still there.


they did alot of paving construction on both sides of track with the front pit/parking half gone its all sand now


the small house announcer thingy that was near 1/8 track and has been raised since the track was closed has now finally moved to the middle of the track it is fenced off



swap meet set up is different dont know if its b/c of the construction but its now half, up to the end of stands and where they sell food the rest is fenced off the airport side pit was very small area for vendors.


they put vendors in the grass/dirt/parking now close to the mx/drifting or where we would park for the swap meets so there there was now 3 sections for vendors but in total there was alot less imo id say the swap meet is about 50% smaller than it was in the last year or two
