The two biggest tracks in NJ BITD were Howell and Braddock.
Howell- NBL – Gleasons
Braddock- ABA – Jim Cerullo
Gleason – Cerullo – bike shop owners and business people.
(I should add that the Gleasons ran BW VERY succesfully and JV Cycles is STILL in business today.)
Now they were from 2 “competing sanctions”, but ya know what they did to jack with the tardo sanctions?
Call each other and be sure that when they had big races they scheduled them opposite each other…
Howell has War of the Stars one weekend, Braddock has Triple Pointer the following and visa versa.
They PLAYED off each other. Pulling riders in and keeping them racing in NJ.
Now if the current players in BMX in NJ get their act together we can show people how to do things right.
I KNOW that Diane and Bill will be down to make things work out and promote, and I HOPE that everyone else is.
Remember folks the MEDIA exists for BMX in NJ now and we are bias to one thing and that is…

20,000 flyers in school districts and pizza parlors will get people to the track.
Scott and the Cranmers are great people and will keep the kids coming back.March 24, 2007 at 2:31 am #42488BIGANT-DOGMember

Well before Braddock and Howell were the top tracks in NJ the top dogs were Vineland (Ran by the Zeuners who also ran a bike shop, it ran under 3 different sanctions) and Craigmeur which was NBA at its peak and then went to ABA just before closing I think.
Your point is well taken though, tracks regardless of sanction should work together. Not just the Jersey tracks but PA, DE, MD, CT and NY also.
