ATLANTIC CITY DRAGWAY?
By Alan Lewis
Yes, there was drag racing a long time ago in “Atlantic City, N.J.” I must qualify this statement by adding that it really was in Pleasantville, N.J. and was at a circle track called Atlantic City Speedway.
I found a historical website for Atlantic City Speedway with a lot of old photos of the roundy round racing but nothing mentioning the drag racing.
I offer proof:
