FLEMINGTON, N.J. — Longtime Flemington Speedway promoter Paul Kuhl has died.
Kuhl became interested in auto racing at a young age and became promoter of the unique five-eighths-mile square dirt track in 1971.
Kuhl operated the speedway located at the Flemington Fairgrounds until the track was closed in 2000 and later redeveloped.
Flemington Speedway first held auto races in 1915 and Kuhl was at the helm during the track’s glory years, overseeing a transition from dirt to asphalt in 1990.
Under Kuhl’s reign the track was often referred to and promoted as “Modified Country U.S.A.”
Kuhl was born in 1927.
