Speed Raceway to Open at the End of the Month

Former Eagle Brandon Whiting will be the Cinnaminson general manager of the go-kart joint.

 

It's almost time to start your engines. 

Speed Raceway should open by the end of the month, according to the Cinnaminson location’s general manager—the group is waiting on cart and track certification from the state.

Brandon Whiting, general manager, said the certification is the main thing holding up the Speed Raceway opening on Route 130.

“We’re pretty much getting things buttoned up over here,” Whiting said.

Superstorm Sandy also may have contributed to the state’s late certification process and there were some shipping delays with the go-karts that come from Italy.

“But we want to do it right,” Whiting said of the opening. He’s expecting the certifications to come though within the next two weeks and is planning for an end-of-the-month opening. 

“We’re excited about it,” Whiting said. “We get people coming in every day excited about it opening.”

Whiting, a former defensive lineman with the Philadelphia Eagles, was working in construction when he was in the area and stopped by the facility a few months ago. Whiting, who lives in Haddonfield, will manage the day-to-day business of the Cinnaminson location.

“I ran into a few of the owners, hit it off really well and it went from there,” Whiting said. “It developed into a good working relationship.”

Hy, reread this patch report about all the pedestrians killed along Rt. 130 and then look at what you said: “Do we really need the sidewalks there. Who cares!!” Hy, do profits mean more to you than the life of a child walking along that highway? Can you comfortably live with yourself if anyone gets killed because a business did not payout the small cost of a sidewalk? To think you are a republican pillar of this community. http://cinnaminson.patch.com/articles/rt-130-again-named-most-dangerous-road-for-pedestrians For the fourth year in a row, Route 130 in Burlington County has been named the most dangerous road for pedestrians in the state. The Tri-State Transportation Campaign, a non-profit organization that focuses on transportation, based the designation on 10 pedestrian deaths that occurred over a three-year period.

I was disappointed to see how expensive it will be to have a kids party there. It would have been fun but I was quoted $45-65 per person. Too rich for our family. Still I am glad to see a business there and hope it is successful.
