The track-owning Napp family, who have operated the facility since , made the announcement that it would cease operations of its quarter-mile and one-eight-mile drag racing facility while continuing to hold other auto- and motorcycle-related activities. The family intends to keep running Old Bridge Township Airport, a wholly owned and operated flight facility on its premises. The racing facility is home track for current three-time Pro Stock Motorcycle champion Eddie Krawiec and for three-time Top Fuel title-holder Antron Brown, both of whom have celebrated victories at this venue. NHRA adopted 1,foot track distances shortly thereafter, deeming the quarter-mile too dangerous at many venues, particularly older tracks like Raceway Park.
