Demarest, an Atlantic | City attorney, is assembling the 455-acre site from | multiple parcels. No details are presently available.

Demarest made a presentation at the Eastern MotorSports Press Assoc. (EMPA) annual meeting in Jan. 94. At that time the porject had already had at least one false start. The renderings showed not a road course, but an oval with a road course tied in via the oval and infield. Demarest said that it was unlikely that any spectator facilities would be permitted in the infield, that area would be strictly for race teams and the track. There was at that time still no specific information as to the exact plot of land that would be used; rumors of the track's construction had apparently driven up land prices in the area. Since then I've not heard or read anything more about the project. Greg Rickes
