FSHS Membership Meeting - ASPHALT ERA Discussion - Join FSHS at our May 16th, 2023 Membership Meeting at the Flemington Elks Lodge #1928, 165 State Route #31, Flemington, New Jersey 08822 at 7:00 pm. After the membership meeting, join in a discussion of Flemington Speedway's Asphalt Era (1991-2000). A guest panel is TBA.  Asphalt construction began almost immediately at Flemington Speedway after the final race weekend of the 1990 season -- following the October 28th Shammy Shine 200 -- and was completed on April 10th, 1991 when the final racing surface was put down. Rock was used as a base, then three (3) inches of asphalt were laid down and allowed to settle over the winter. A two-inch top surface was put down in the Spring of 1991. The shape and width of the D-square track remained virtually unchanged, but the banking was increased. Most pit and paddock areas were also paved, and the drainage was upgraded. Lights were added for television.
Interested in being a part of the guest panel? Please contact FSHS President - Dennis Tretter
