Default E-Town racing fact or fiction?

Howdy...

I've heard a runor from a few guys around NY that the E-Town track might reopen for racing?

I've also heard in one version of the story that Tom Baffer, the owner of Bruckner Hobbies is involved in this.

Does anyone know anything about this? I really miss Saturday nights at E-Town.

????

that would be awsome, that was my home track from 94-2000, one of the best on the east coast.

Geez, the last time i saw the asphalt track was when 2 dumpsters were dragged across it. I guess the strip mall never worked out? Even the furniture guy that rented the old hobby shop moved out, $3.200 a month for an old chicken coop.

Good thing, here's the latest pics i saw : http://www.mtvfc1.com/firepictures04.html

It appears the old hobby shop is untouched .

Matt, how have you been?

That rumor was truth sometime during the last year and a half, or so says one of the LHS owners around here. Sadly, the track is either torn up or under many feet of dirt. Either way, the area it once rested is no longer recognizable. R.I.P. E-town

Matt, do you remember the 25 lap A-main run?

Nevermind, it was easily forgetable. It's not like you broke the unbreakable 25 lap track record in a ten car A-main.
