Speed Raceway to Hold Grand Opening With Giveaways, 94 WIP Host, More

The go kart facility has been open for more than a month, but manager Brandon Whiting is holding a grand opening event this weekend.


Business has been booming at Speed Raceway, the go-kart facility that opened in the former Vanity Fair location Dec. 14.

On Saturday, it will have a grand opening celebration, complete with a ribbon cutting, giveaways and a Philadelphia sports talk personality.

“Cinnaminson has welcomed us with open arms,” said Brandon Whiting, manager of Speed Raceway.

Starting at 11 a.m., when the facility opens, to its closing at 10 p.m., raffle prizes will be announced as well as package giveaways, including gift cards, hats and shirts.

Free pizza will be given out at noon for those who race Saturday.

Whiting, a former defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles, called on some former friends, and from 1 to 3 p.m., 94 WIP personality Paul Jolovitz will be giving away Wing Bowl tickets and WIP prize packages.

Cinnaminson Mayor Ben Young and Deputy Mayor Anthony Minniti are slated to cut the ribbon for Speed Raceway at 3 p.m.

Listen to WIP between 1 and 3 p.m., Jan. 19, to hear Whiting talk about Speed Raceway.

The business opened just about two weeks before Christmas and in those weeks it was packed.

“People were off work, kids were home from school, it was crowded fast,” Whiting said.

Expectedly, the daytime traffic has died down a little but weekends have been great, Whiting said. 

Stay tuned for photos from the grand opening celebration Sunday.

not against an entertainment complex, how about indoor golf, minature, pin ball games, horse shoe pits, baseball cages, but make sure its all level b/c someone said that the course was not even level from a person who enjoys the track....those are his words not mine....I know our township loves it for the ratables, we need it for the schools so our taxes stay down ha ha....
