New Jersey Motorsports Park is a road course located in Millville, Cumberland County, New Jersey, United States. It has a somewhat turbulent past, being the subject of repeated noise complaints from neighboring property owners. In 2010 the NJMP declared bankruptcy, and has been struggling since to gain a foothold. It has hosted races since opening in 2008 and currently boasts a schedule including AMA Pro Road Racing, ARCA Racing Series, American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association, and SCCA events.
New Jersey Motorsports Park is located on 500 acres immediately adjacent to the Millville Municipal Airport, a location that was dedicated in 1941 as America’s First Defense Airport, which played a key role in the country’s World War II military efforts.
NJMP is one of only a handful of facilities in the world housing two circuits that can be operated simultaneously. The tracks both feature many elevation changes, along with lengthy front straights. One of the best known features of this course is a stretch on Thunderbolt Raceway known as “the Jersey devil.”
The Park offers open seating which allows spectators to venture throughout the grounds. Grandstands are available in several locations, in addition to camping areas and on-site hotel and condominium accommodations. The facility includes a full-service bar and restaurant, The Finish Line Pub, located at the center of the property.
Many renowned racing series have visited at New Jersey Motorsports Park. The first was Grand-Am’s Rolex Sports Car Series in 2008, with Oswaldo Negri and Mark Patterson capturing the first-ever Thunderbolt trophies. The ARCA Racing Series and AMA Superbike Championship also joined the NJMP schedule, holding annual points-paying races at the northeast facility.
Other notable events include the “Devil in the Dark”, a 12-hour endurance race put on by the South Jersey region of the SCCA. Regional and national sportscar and motorcycle clubs also hold hundreds of track-day events at the two circuits each season.
