Customer Testimonials:

Finish Line Pub:

“Delicious food and service. Highly recommend this restaurant/pub. I had a salad with cranberries, walnuts, blue cheese, and grilled chicken. Very fresh and the chicken was moist. The draft beer from the local Millville brewery was really good too. Our party of 7 was easily accommodated.”

Go-Karting:

“We had a GREAT time! Everyone here now has some stories to tell or bragging rights to share.  All in all, the camaraderie that was gained was second to none.  Thank you once again for all your efforts on this, and to your staff for making the experience everything we expected.”

Battlegrounds Paintball:

“The staff were absolutely perfect from the lady that got us all checked in to our all day referee and our server in the dining area. All great. It was a great tie with friends and you can’t beat the price for an all day activity.”

NASCAR:

“What a great facility! We could not say enough great things about our experience during the NASCAR K&N event! From having complete access to garage areas and drivers to NJMP creating a great fan experience. The thing that sticks out the most was how friendly and hardworking all the employees of: NJMP are. We can’t wait to come back!”

Community Feedback:

Listed below is a sampling of feedback received from the community for September 2017

  • September 4, 2017 – 9:14am: Early engine start at 7:55. at 8:20 and engines are still revving. No one cares, who is going to hold NJMP accountable.
    • NJMP personnel on site determined there to be no early engine starts.  NJMP personnel noted possible noise from surrounding businesses.
  • September 16, 2017 – 4:19pm: we were told no NASCAR, whats at the track this weekend. NASCAR, proven liars again!! Why anybody would trust this business is beyond me.
    • Please refer to the section below titled “New Jersey Motorsports Park and NASCAR.”
  • September 16, 2017 – 6:51pm: Lodging noise complaint again loudspeaker noise coming from NJMP at 6:45pm.
    • NJMP Personnel altered PA system for NASCAR event. System was adjusted to normal configurations immediately following the event.

NJMP is currently working with a facility communications company for additional alteration to the mechanics and physical speakers at NJMP that we feel will enhance the customer experience at NJMP while reducing the amount of PA communications leaving NJMP.

Here are some of the action steps currently in progress:

Thunderbolt Tower:

  • Remove the Peavey NION 6 unit and route sources directly to the single space mixer.  This will expand volume controls
  • Enhancing the FM Transmitter to allow for greater FM communications

VIP Suite Garages:

  • Install 2 new speakers and change the direction of 2 existing speakers

Lightning Tower:

  • FM Transmitter does not work.  We will replace the transmitter and antenna
  • Upgrade the quality of transmission and reduce the “hum”.

Kart Building

  • Relocate the far right speaker down.  Speaker is facing toward Porrecca Drive.

Officer’s Club

  • Suggest relocation of speakers to fence area and point inside NJMP and may add additional speakers.  This is still under review.  For 2017 we turn off the Officers Club speakers for all events except for large spectator event

NJMP feels these changes will have a positive impact on our PA System and look forward to hearing additional feedback. We are also working on encouraging the use of FM Transmitters for internal communications for some of the smaller groups which reduces the other required larger communications.  We appreciate all of the time and feedback to NJMP which will help provide a greater communication program for all involved.

*At the end of each month NJMP will populate this page with a sampling of the most up-to-date feedback from the community.*
*In May, NJMP had the PA system adjusted and measured facility wide by a professional company to ensure sound standards are met.*

New Jersey Motorsports Park and NASCAR

New Jersey Motorsports Park would like to address recent statements in the press and at public meetings connected to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series which ran at NJMP in 2016, and is scheduled to return in 2017. There has been a misunderstanding among members of the public who believe that NJMP committed not to hold a NASCAR event at the NJMP facility.

In the fall of 2005, during NJMP’s planning board hearing for preliminary and final site plan approval, a question was asked by one of the planning board members if NJMP planned to have a NASCAR event. The question was answered by Lee Brahin the project’s managing member and majority owner at the time.

NASCAR is an organization which sanctions and owns approximately 14 different series that are run nationally and internationally. The context of the planning board member’s question related to NASCAR’s most popular stock car series, the Nextel Cup Series, known today as the Sprint Cup Series.

    Effects of Race Car Modification

Race Car, Performance Car, and Track Car modifications require timely and financial efforts. The finely tuned machines are accurately and specifically prepared to perform on the race track, and much adapted to New Jersey Motorsports Park. Below are comments from credible sources on the effects of converting Race/Performance/Track Cars to meet specified modifications.

Mufflers and Exhaust:

  • “When one designs a track specific car that runs open exhaust, there are many factors involved in that decision. The engine is modified for specific flow through the valve train to handle an open exhaust. The electronic “brain” that handles the fuel flow is modified for a more “open” exhaust system. Installing a muffler will reduce this flow and could cause engine damage for the system would run too rich. The entire ECU (electronic control unit) would have to be re-programmed to handle the reduced flow. All of these modifications need to be checked on a Dyno to ensure the proper fuel to air mixture so the fuel burn is good and no damage to the valve train should occur. My car is specifically for 110 leaded octane fuel. So one can not simply install a muffler.” – Pete Tremper, NJMP Lead Instructor and PCA Official
  • “Performance and safety are significantly impacted by changes to exhaust and sound. I did a back to back comparison in March 2014 with a race car I own, and simply bolting a stock muffler on the car made a big enough difference that the car was slowed to the point where it would be unsuitable (if not outright unsafe) for competition,  and certainly undesirable from a performance perspective.” – Thomas Smith, SCCA National License Driver
  • “Simply bolting on a muffler for specific events is not really an option due to design and space constraints. To even access the exhaust components of most rear engine Porsches actually requires removing the engine from the car. Redesigning and engineering a new exhaust system for one of these cars would likely cost between $1000 – $3000 in parts, between $1000 – $2000 to re-tune the engine to properly run with the new exhaust, and another $1000 – $2000 in labor cost.” – Provost Motorsports Technician
  • “One of the prime reasons for opening up exhaust flow is safety. A muffled system serves as a strong heat sink and will become extremely hot after being run for long periods at high RPMs. Opening up the exhaust flow allows the heat to exit quickly.” – AWE Tuning
  • “Some cars just don’t have the room for them (mufflers) and others are not designed for them. The added weight can dramatically alter the handling of the vehicle and can be a safety concern.” – Phoenix Performance
