This new partnership enlists Motorsports Lounge (www.motorsportslounge.com) as the “Official Short Track Message Boards for Speed51.com.”  Team ML will also host the message boards for 51’s website clients and the CRA Super Series.  Speed51.com will continue to focus solely on reporting the latest news of short track racing all across the country, as well to continuously updating and creating new and interesting websites for the fans and its clients.

Speed 51.com’s Bob Dillner, who is also a television commentator for SPEED with the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series, looks forward to the partnership between the two companies and the possibilities it holds for short track racing.
SPEED51.COM AND MOTORSPORTS LOUNGE ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP
Culmination of Two Short Track Websites Means Big Things for Fans
Two of the most well-known websites in short track racing are bringing their acts together.  Speed51.com and Motorsports Lounge have announced a partnership that promises to benefit fans and drivers alike.

Speed51.com is renowned for its short track coverage and its professional and creative website designs.  In a little more than five years it has become the largest asphalt short track site in America, including partnerships with NASCAR, USAR Hooters Pro Cup and many Super Late Model and other grassroots racing series. 
“It is really an excellent match, and it actually has been in the works for about a year,” added Buckley.  “We talked about it at last year’s Summer Shootout and we have been toying with the idea of it for a while. We finally got it going, and now Motorsports Lounge is the largest official driver forums website.  We are up to 78 drivers and counting and we can continue making both of our sites bigger and better.”

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 this type of news and behind-the-scenes stories.  Now, 51 is viewed by thousands of people per day.  Speed51 fuels your Short Track appetite for ARCA, ASA, NASCAR's Grand National and Elite Divisions, Whelen Modifieds, USAR Pro Cup, all forms of Super Late Models and other racing throughout the four seasons. 

51 Sports, publisher of Speed51.com, is continually signing up clients for its Sports Services and Web Design work.  51 offers everything from single-time press releases to full campaigns, hero cards, website development and much more.  If you are interested in finding out more, please contact us at www.speed51.com or through Jeremy Troiano at (704) 455-2051.

51 Sports is also proud to announce a new venture for 2006.  51 Designs with Dale Averill has a wide range of services available to race teams including sportswear, hero card design, car and logo design and more.  For more information, please call Dale Averill at (704) 455-2051 or be sure to check out the all-new 51designs.net.




Now fans have a new home to talk about the hottest drivers in the country like Joey Logano.
“I am really excited to be partnered up with Bob Dillner and Speed 51,” said Buckley.  “The whole crew is top-notch in short track reporting and producing websites.  Since my site also houses official discussion forums for drivers and Speed 51 was doing the same, it just made more sense to pool the resources together and let Speed 51 focus on short track websites and reporting and me focus on the forums.” 

The timing is just right for the two to partner up as well, with the summer being the busiest point of the racing season.

“This is a great fit for Speed51.com,” said Dillner.  “Motorsports Lounge has developed into a premier message board-style website.  The construction of their sites and the simplicity of using them is what lured us to doing this partnership.  I believe bringing our message boards under one roof with Motorsports Lounge will really be beneficial for short track racing fans.  It will enable them to discuss what’s going on in the short track world as well as discuss many of the stories that appear on Speed51.”

Jason Buckley, owner of Motorsports Lounge, is intrigued about the opportunities for both companies and looks forward to what the partnership can do for short track racing in the future.

NASCAR Modified star Donny Lia is one of the drivers who frequently chats with fans on the boards.
