Both Speed Raceway and 7-Eleven Set to Open...
The two Cinnaminson businesses are slated to open on the same day.
Speed Raceway is set to open to the public at noon today for go-karters both young and old. It will be open until 11 p.m.
“We finally got all the paperwork and everything necessary we needed,” said Brandon Whiting, manager of Speed Raceway, the Denver-based go-kart facility housed in the former Vanity Fair building on Route 130 and Riverton Road.
There are some little things that need finishing up though, Whiting said. The merchandise shop probably won’t be open right away and the TVs may or may not be ready to go.
But the go-karts are ready and really, that’s all that matters.
“People can expect to get out there and test our tracks, enjoy and karts and have a good time,” Whiting said.
A grand opening will be scheduled for some time in January, Whiting said.
The new 7-Eleven on Highland Avenue and Route 130 South is also scheduled for opening today. According to Deputy Mayor Anthony Minniti, the certificate of occupancy for the group was approved this week.
The new 7-Eleven's opening date was pushed back four times; originally, it was to open in October. Spokesperson Margaret Chabris cited construction issues for the setback.
Whiting, of Speed Raceway, said he was waiting on permits from the state for the past month.
