Atco Dragway (NJ) Closes
Atco Dragway, the NHRA-sanctioned 1/4-mile drag strip in Atco, New Jersey, has shuttered its doors.
The following was posted to atcodragway.com:
Effective immediately, Atco Dragway is permanently closed. Thank you for your valued business and support [over] the last 63 years. Special thank you to our 29th annual Pan American Nationals racers and crowd for making Atco Dragway's last event the biggest and best one ever. This isn't the end for import racing in the Northeast! To all of our staff, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sticking it out with us and being the best in the business!
The facility opened on Memorial Day in 1960 and was the oldest drag strip in New Jersey. At one point, the track held the title of one of the busiest in the country, hosting over 265 events in one year.
The track most recently hosted the 29th annual Pan American Nationals, July 13-16, which wrapped early after finishing the third round of eliminations on Sunday due to rain.
