Brief Track History
During the first three weekends of April, 1981, twenty-five to thirty volunteer dads,
moms, children and local businessmen constructed the race track with literally hundreds of
volunteer hours by parents and children ranging in age from 5 to 16. The course itself was
laid out and designed by former Freeholder and Township Engineer, Frank Bohren.
During the 1990 race season, we were notified by the Hunterdon County Freeholders that
they had plans for a warehouse on the very location of our track!

we enlisted the help of Bob Tedesco, CEO of the National
Bicycle League. Bob came to build the track in its present location.
