I was contacted about a month ago by a very creative guy who has some racing roots here in NJ.  He does a series of YouTube Video's that he calls "Destination Anywhere."  He was working on a video featuring the site of the former Amatol/Atlantic City Speedway (board track), and wanted to include a few images from our site. 

The video is only 10 minutes long, but it captures so much great information about the history of the site, both as a speedway, and as a munitions site, and it was great to see it all put together in such a professional way.

Here's the link guys:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3MifV3DOFg&t=11s

Thank you to "Mickey" for reaching out to us, and for doing such a great job in creating the video.  Mickey does it purely for the fun, and for historical reasons, and I hope that as his schedule allows, maybe he can consider including other former speedway sites for future video projects.

Joe, thanks for posting this video.  I grew up a  proud member of the 60s-70s racing scene, mostly as a fan.  A well done piece on a track that I never knew existed.   I had the same experience as Mickey but at a different track.  Many years ago, I had the opportunity to visit the site of the old Arneys Mount Speedway, which was a few miles from where I grew in in Jobstown, NJ.  Watching Mickey's video about the old AC "board" speedway brought a smile to my face and a good feeling in my heart.  Made me appreciate being a Saturday night racing fan.  Scott Ely

Very cool and very creative. Can do similar for Flemington Speedway. Would not take long either as all that is at the old site is pavement! Costco, Walmart, Lowes and on and on,,,,just what we needed in NJ, more stores.

Received an email from "Mickey" thanking us for posting a link to his video, and thanking you guys for the positive response to his Amatol video.

Thanks also to Jeff Hardifer (www.wallycampbell.com ) for providing historical information, and a "thank you" to Mickey (creator of the video) for recognizing Russ Dodge and George Koyt, and for including our site name as well.

For those like me who like to know more about historic/interesting places in NJ and surrounding area, check out some of his other video's at:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChf12xxlzKJWDh-06tdx4Jw

I'll bet many of us have visited the places featured in a lot of his video's, and it's really cool to see them (again) presented so well, along with the historical information about each site.  For those sites featured that you haven't been to, perhaps a roadtrip is in your future!
