Business Spotlight: Wall Stadium Speedway

Down at the Jersey Shore, the Wall Stadium Speedway is home to great racing and family fun for the surrounding communities and fans of all ages.  From the time the Speedway first began racing in 1950, they have continued to provide a great experience for the fans who flock to the stadium.

Since it opened, the Wall Speedway was created on 47 acres with the future and safety in mind, featuring banked turns and a one-third mile track.  The track design was developed based on allowing racing car speeds to increase, but also providing a margin of safety.  Over time, the Speedway was altered and updated a few times, adding more safety precautions such as a flat inner loop and a metal guard rail.  Now it hosts many racing events throughout the year.  One of the most recognized races held is the annual Turkey Derby, which takes place each Thanksgiving weekend.  This year will be the 39thrunning of the popular event.

As a family operated business, the Krause family works hard to make sure the needs of the fans are met.  Stated Co-Owner Diane Krause, “Since our family began managing the Speedway in 2011 – we have really placed an emphasis on making sure our fans experience our family friendly, family fun atmosphere.  We want them to have a great time, right in their own backyard!”  And that they will, as Wall Stadium Speedway prides itself on its ability to provide family fun, offering entertainment not just for the diehard fans – but for kids too!  In addition to the races, the Speedway also has a dunk tank, bounce house, face painting, and mini train rides.  The Wall Stadium Speedway also has a new Kid’s Klub, where young racing fans can spend some time playing games, doing arts and crafts, and having all sorts of fun.  The Speedway even has a personal party area for young fans to host birthday parties at the track!

Over the years, the Wall Stadium Speedway has added new equipment, seating, a new sound system and lighting, among other amenities, and has renovated in order to keep the stadium up to date.  They also have plans for a few more new additions in the future – so stay tuned!

Wall Speedway currently races stock cars on Saturday nights in season.  They have two Open Wheel Divisions – Modified and Sportsman Class, as well as Legends, and two Classic Divisions – Factory Stock and Street Stock.  You can view the racing schedule at wallspeedwayracing.com.

With the Corporate Office being right across the street from the Speedway, First Financial has partnered with the stadium by sponsoring a #88 Senior Champ Kart in the past. Caroline Nickerson (First Financial member since 1965), and mother of driver Roger Nickerson (built the Speedway’s Sunday Go Cart Series Program), approached the credit union’s Business Development team and mentioned her husband, Charles Nickerson was a former First Financial CEO and Speedway enthusiast. She hoped that Mr. Nickerson’s former two vested interests could be combined into developing a partnership.  The credit union couldn’t have been happier to oblige and in addition to sponsoring the company branded Senior Champ Kart, also sponsored some additional event nights at the stadium.
