NJMP Buys Land For Track Development

MILLVILLE, N.J. – New Jersey Motorsports Park has made a land purchase for the planned Field of Dreams off-road park from the city of Millville.

The sale, finalized today, is effective immediately.

“We have been working on this project for so long, and to finally see if coming to fruition is just a phenomenal feat and unbelievable feeling,” said Clayton Keeler, Field of Dreams managing partner. “All of the pieces of the puzzle are finally coming together and we are extremely excited to work with NJMP and create a facility like none other,”

“We have the partnership, location, experience, and team to make this Park one of the best of its kind.”

A total of four professionally designed and built tracks will make up the facility, to be located on Buckshutem Road in Millville, including a smaller course for younger and inexperienced riders, and the largest for participants with the most experience on two and four wheels.

Among the planned tracks, a straight rhythm course designed for amateur riders will set Field of Dreams apart.

“Red Bull recently created a Straight Rhythm Track for its pro racers that was simply a half-mile straightaway; truly innovative to the sport,” Field of Dreams general manager Richard Schmidt said. “When the team got together and started discussing the possibility to create such a track, I made a major push for it. It will bring something totally unique to NJMP Field of Dreams.”

The Park’s trails system will feature tighter, narrower areas for two-wheeled riders and wider spots for those on four. “We want our trail system to cater to all off-road participants,” said Keeler.

For those who don’t own their own off-road vehicle, a training and rental center is also included in Field of Dreams’ plans.

“The training and rental center will be a great addition to the facility. We’ll offer training to the novice that needs to rent bikes and gear, and the rider looking to improve his or her skills on their own equipment,” Schmidt noted.

Although official rates are not yet finalized, daily practice and annual membership options are expected shortly. Racing events, both professional and amateur, are also planned.

Brad Scott, NJMP General Manager/COO, thanked the public for their patience and support throughout the process.

“Our fans have been waiting for this announcement,” Scott said. “They’ve been incredibly supportive, and the Field of Dreams staff is ready to deliver on the plans for a world-class off-road facility.”
