... Even more common than the closure rumors are complaints from neighbors about the constant noise emanating from the racetrack. On clear nights, car engines from Wall Stadium can be heard from miles away.

The "roar at the Shore" isn't just a clever nickname.

"Try living up the road and feel the vibrations and noise as you try to sit down at your kitchen table on a Saturday to have a meal. Don't even think about listening to music or watching a movie," one neighbor wrote in a letter to the Asbury Park Press in 2009, shortly after racing resumed
Move into an area to complain about noise from a track that has been racing since 1950

Good news. I feel like a "track closer" -- almost all my favorite short tracks I've attended have closed over the years. When I worked in Philly, in the early eighties, I had New Egypt on Wednesday, East Windsor on Friday, Flemington, Grandview or Bridgeport on Saturday, And Nazareth on Sunday, all summer long. In the seventies, Old and New Jacksonville Speedways, Golden Gate and Sunshine eventually closed. In California, Cajon Speedway, Suagus, San Jose,Speedway 117, Ascot, and a few more that I'm probably forgetting.

Don't let me move to your area! (❁´◡`❁)
