NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Imagine if you could test out your car at full throttle, just to see what she can do, and do it legally.
Well there was a place like that in New Jersey for 50 years.
Out Route 46 west of Hackettstown at 20 Island Road in Great Meadows was Island Dragway.
It was a throwback. You pulled down the dirt driveway and, if you turned left, you could race your own car, your own street car, against others.
