This 1/4 mile clay oval race track reopened in 2013 as America's Raceway Park after being dormant for six years.
It opened in 1992 as Hidden Valley Speedway. After it was sold in 2002, it was renamed Gamblers Raceway Park. It did not operate in 2005 and closed down after the 2007 season.
In 2011, New Jersey race car driver Jeff Taylor heard about this abandoned track located five hours from his home. After taking a trip to visit the site, he was amazed at the potential it offered. After quickly striking a deal to buy the land, his team spent several months of rebuilding and repairing the facility. It reopened in April 2013. The track is named after Jeff's wife (and track co-owner) America.
