    Will still have car shows swap meets motocross and drift events, but no more drag racing. I bet its an insurance issue.

    All quarter and eighth mile events are coming to an end, while dirt bike, karting, road course and drift events will continue. The reason for the closure of drag racing appears to come from the track leasing out that area to Insurance Auto Auctions to store cars. Englishtown previously held some of the thousands of cars flooded by Hurricane Sandy back in 2013, so this relationship isn’t coming out of nowhere.

    A source familiar with the matter said that IAA recently came back and made an offer the track “couldn’t refuse.”
