MARLBORO MOTOR RACEWAY
The Marlboro oval was well banked.  This made it a lot different than Vineland which also incorporated an oval.  At Marlboro you were accelerating hard out of Cappy's corner and went uphill and onto the oval.  You wanted to stay right to take level off the elevation differenceon the banking - but sometimes you couldn't.  Same for going off the oval onto the road circuit.  Stay right and keep the wheels on theground.  With some of the fast cars it simply didn't work.  One was never lonely on Marlboro.  Even if there weren't cars around you everywhere you had little time to sight see, this was a tight course. 
Here are some random shots from the past including some BARC member shots from back in the day.


Craige Pelouze - a Marlboro regular went with his Dad to the inaugural race in 1955. 
Here we show 5 shots of a very new and dusty Marlboro 1955
