SPEED51.COM AND MOD SERIES SCENE ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP
Read Stories on Speed51.com and Discuss Them on Mod Series Scene Forums
Two websites that are familiar to fans of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour have joined forces to give fans a better voice on the Internet. Speed51.com and Mod Scene Scene have announced an alignment to make MSS the Official Modified Fan Forum of Speed51. The fan forum at MSS will replace the current 51 Modified message board and both sites will contain links to each other.
Campbell, who has controlled the maintenance for MSS since founder Lou Cady passed away in September of 2004. “We look forward to furthering this relationship more in the future.”
The real winners in this relationship will be Modified fans who can keep up with the latest news and race recaps on Speed51.com and then go and share their own thoughts on the MSS forum.
“I see Modified Tour drivers, crew members and fans posting on Mod Series Scene all of the time,” said Mike Twist, Speed51.com Northeastern correspondent. “I know that there are even more lurkers out there as well. Mod Series Scene really is the ‘town hall’ of the Modified community and at Speed51.com we try to be the ‘newspaper’ of that community, so to be able to come together is really a great thing.”
First established in 1999 by Lou Cady, Mod Series Scene (MSS) has become the unofficial home of the Modified Tour, giving fans a place where they can read and discuss the latest happenings of their favorite Modified drivers and teams.
Speed51.com has become a leader in online Motorsports information by focusing on the Short Track Racing realm. 51 realized nearly five years ago that there was a void in the industry for news and behind-the-scenes stories. Now, 51 is viewed by thousands of fans per day. The site fuels your Short Track appetite for NASCAR's Grand National and Elite Divisions, NASCAR Modifieds Tours, the USAR Pro Cup Series, Super Late Models from all across the country and much more.
51 Sports, publisher of Speed51.com, is continually signing up clients for its Sports Services and Web Design work for 2005 and beyond. 51 offers everything from single-time press releases to full campaigns, website development and much more. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact us through www.speed51.com.
