1939: LITTLE KNOWN LINCOLN SPEEDWAY - HAMILTON TOWNSHIPO

 
 
Today the Nottingham High School occupies the spot where once local racing fans from Central Jersey came to watch the "midget races" at Hamilton Township's Lincoln Speedway on Klockner Road near Hamilton Avenue. This little known race track is known to only a few (until now!) Above is an article from 1939 telling of the July 16 race to be held at the little fifth mile oval track at Lincoln Raceway. Facinating and little known local history, but you saw it first on this Hamilton Library Local History Collection website!
