Best route to NJMP?
« on: August 26, 2009, 12:30:23 pm »
Patriot Racing is taking a group of wounded veterans to the AMA races at NJMP on Saturday, Sept 5.

I wasn't able to make the CCS races in July, and have heard everything from the drive sucks to the drive was no problem.
We will be picking up the vets from Walter Reed (in DC) and getting on the road no later than 0630 Saturday morning.

Any input to make our drive up smooth and fast would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hey Bel biv- been there twice now and don't travel from south of the track, but here goes w/my .02-
95 North from you to NJ Turnpike(same road) . Exit 3  ( as you come into NJ )  take NJ 168N , black horse Pike (still 168NJ)- then 295 s towards Whitman Bridge, 42 s towards Atlantic city, then 55S (exit 13 )towards Glassboro, then 47 S exit 27 towards Millville. Merge onto 47S ,onto N.2nd st, right on E. Main st Left on Cedar cr555 Left on S. Race st to Dividing Creek rd- Signs are around town when you get within a mile or so  near  the track- 

Navigation Device?  Set to 8000 Dividing Creek Rd. Millville , NJ  08332 Careful, some devices seem confused in the track's area! 
from the Nj turnpike, approximately 45 minutes (mostly south) to the track.

I hope this helps, my experience is only twice there and it is a bit difficult to find,but for us NJ racers, all roads lead to NJMP-
Good Luck and Thank all the Vets for me! I will be there in the tent camping "extra" grounds. DOCTORENERGYSMART.com White Van-  Stop By Say Hi! Daymn $40 a nite to pitch a tent .! I bought that luxury yesterday  (Wed) and was told ) space was going FAST!
Us northeasterners have missed AMA PRO racing locally for many years,  Mladin's last race ? Next year's contract decision maker? Hope all the racers are as hungry for the win!

How many tolls are you willing to pay?  First one is the tunnel in Baltimore if you don't take 695 around Baltimore back to I-95.  I went around.  Then you'll have a toll on the north side of the river in Havre de Grace.  This toll is northbound only.  It's $4 for two axles, $6 for one more axle and it goes up from there.  This one is sort of avoidable if you exit before the river and take
Rt 155 to Pulaski Hwy and Rt275 back to I-95.  There is still a toll, but for $5 (for a car, not sure about other vehicles) you can get some sort of bar code sticker that allows unlimited crossing.

Then when you get into Delaware there is a toll.  This one cost me $15.   :ahhh:  Highway robbery.  This one is avoidable in both directions and certainly worth it.  Had I known how much it was I definitely would've gone around the first time.  Look at a map for Elkton Rd, Christiana Pkwy, and S. College Ave.  This is the detour route.  The free detour was actually faster on the way back from NJ because traffic was backed up for miles because of the toll.  I was surprised there weren't more people exiting there.

From there stay on I-95 to 295 east where you will cross the river.  No toll this time, but on the way home it cost me $4.50.  Then look for the exit for Rt140, Rt40 or Cedar Crest Manor, it's the second interchange.  I'm not sure what the signs say.  This is the last exit before the turnpike and tolls begin.  Here you'll exit and stay straight on it.  This is Rt40, it's a two-lane and not real fast.  Stay on Rt40 and until you get to Rt55 and take that south.  It's 4-lane divided, 65mph.   

You can either exit to N 2nd St at the north end of town or E. Main on the east side. I chose E. Main.  This puts you in Millville.

I'm one of those that thought the drive sucked.  Nearly as long as it takes to get to VIR but something like 70-80miles closer.  The drive home was worse because of t-storms and people were doing 15mph on 95. Didn't get good until I-70 and by then it was 9pm.

You may want to think about heading North to the PA Turnpike and taking that East into NJ.

I done that route and the DE/DC route on my way to Summit, and the traffic around Baltimore and DC was unbelievable. Shorter on a map, but the beltway at 2pm was a standstill, even though there was no accidents. I see why people complain about it so much.

You could always donate to the Fisher House charity as a way of saying thanks. :)
