Cumberland County elementary and middle school students, selected by their school, will choose a brand-new winter coat, a pair of gloves or mittens, a hat and a scarf, a book or two and then enjoy a hot, healthy lunch, plus a visit with Santa and some corporate mascots. Each item has been donated to the drive by corporations, Green Flag Committee members, and racers.

“The Green Flag Committee volunteers work hard to support our local children’s organizations,” said Don Fauerbach, founder of the NJMP Green Flag Committee. “For the ninth year in a row we are providing these children in need with warmth and happiness during the holidays. We’re thankful for the support of our sponsors, our community, and all the racers who have helped us raise the funds necessary to accomplish this special goal for these children.”

Leading the corporate contribution list are; Bottino’s Shoprite, South Jersey Gas, Atlantic City Electric and Ocean First Bank with their generous contributions. Bottino’s Shoprite Stores are donating, preparing and serving the complete luncheon for the children, and South Jersey Gas, Atlantic City Electric, and Ocean First Bank are providing funding to purchase a portion of the winter wear, as well as volunteering during the event.

New Jersey Motorsports Park Makes Major Financing Announcement Placing Millville Facility on the Fast Track to the Forefront of the Industry

Refinance transaction will secure future development of the racing and entertainment complex

Millville N.J- New Jersey Motorsports Park Managing Members Lee Brahin and RJ Valentine have today announced that NJMP has completed a mortgage refinance.  This transaction which was first initiated in 2014 has substantially reduced the facility’s mortgage balance and debt service payments. Additionally ownership has acquired the equity interest of the former investment bank partner. With this exciting change New Jersey Motorsports Park will command the future growth and operations at the 500-acre premier racetrack and entertainment facility located in Millville New Jersey.

In a statement from RJ Valentine he commented, “Of course we’re all thrilled to finalize the last step of our financing component for this amazing racing facility. It positions us all for a very positive and profitable future.”

In this announcement the park announced the sale of membership interests to new partners that have joined the ownership group. “During the refinance process we offered an opportunity to join the ownership group to a limited and targeted group of potential business partners.  The ownership team lead by Lee Brahin and Richard Valentine will provide a high level powerful team that will have a great impact in the racing industry during 2016 and beyond

In addition, chief operating officer and general manager Brad Scott will also join the ownership group and work closely with managing members Lee Brahin and RJ Valentine leading the facility into the future. Mark Verrastro of Haddonfield N.J has joined the management team as the general manager and will handle the day to day operations at New Jersey Motorsports Park.  “I am excited to join the NJMP team, the potential for growth of this facility is unlimited” says Mark Verrastro.

“This is what we have been working diligently to accomplish”, says Lee Brahin managing member. “The future of New Jersey Motorsports Park and the potential for future development is very exciting. We applaud the dedication of all those involved to seeing this to fruition and would like to especially thank our friends at TD Bank and the USDA for helping to make this happen. We now have a 15 year fully amortizing loan which is one third less than the facility’s original loan balance. The loan is partially guaranteed by the USDA providing NJMP with savings and certainty going forward.”

New Jersey Motorsports continues to grow and expand the motorsports entertainment facility.  Presently under construction is a 15,000 square foot performance racing service facility located to the left of the main entrance area. This exciting addition to NJMP is scheduled to open in spring 2016.  Forty 7 Motorsports will provide high performance automobile and motorcycle service and will offer storage services for the racing enthusiast.  In other development news the Exotic Car Garage project has sold out phase I in March 2015 and phase II and phase III are expected to go under construction in spring/summer 2016. The Exotic Car Garage project has been a welcomed addition to the complex providing garage to the buyers who want to get their cars ready for the track and have a place to rest up for the next action packed day. These units have been touted at “the ultimate man cave” geared to those with that need for speed.  Some owners have included kitchens and entertainment areas. The sky is the limit as far as customization of the units, “if you can dream it, we can build it” says Brad Scott Chief Operating Officer. The park has also announced that it will begin to seek a ten year naming rights deal for the 500 acre facility.
