Speed51.com Puts Up ‘Help Wanted’ Sign
Popular Short Track Racing Website Looking for “Good Writers” Around the Country
Six years ago, a little known website called 51SportsRacing.com began writing and publishing original stories and features on the internet surrounding two of the biggest short track racing series in the country, the now-defunct ASA National Tour and the World of Outlaws.
In just a short amount of time, the site picked up a huge fan following, branched out to several other short track racing series and regions, including the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast, and blossomed into what is now known as Speed51.com, the nation’s leading pavement short track racing website.
And still today, the growth at Speed51.com continues. Now, the website is looking for even more help, in the form of up-and-coming writers, aspiring journalists and college interns. The website is launching an all-out campaign to find some talented writers looking to get more involved in the racing industry.
“This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time and we’re finally starting to make a push for it,” said Speed51.com Executive Editor Bob Dillner and SPEED Broadcaster. “There are so many great short track series out there. As a website, we can only get to so many on any given weekend. However, if we have more people that can cover races, we can get more stories on Speed51.com and better serve the short track community like they have come to expect from us.
“We are really looking to get some more help in a couple of specific regions of the country. We want a little more help in the Southeast, along with some stringers in the Northeast, the Midwest and possibly even out West. Short Track Racing is still alive and strong all over this country and we want to help show people that.”
Interested parties should fax or email a resume and/or writing samples to Jeremy Troiano in the Speed51.com offices. They can reach Troiano at either Jeremy@51sports.net or by fax at (704) 788-2091.
“We’ve already got a lot of talented writers outside of our full-time family,” said Mike Twist, Editor of Speed51.com. “Guys like Steve Neely, Elgin Traylor, Jim and Denise DuPont, Dean Strom, Jeremy Davidson, Penny Aicardi and others have really helped elevate 51 to a level that we never thought it would be. Now, if we can add to that with even more talented writers from around the country, then we’ll only extend our prominence and make this an even bigger and better website.”
Speed51.com has become a leader in online Motorsports information by focusing on the Short Track Racing realm. 51 realized more than six 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 Divisions, NASCAR Modified Tours, the USAR Pro Cup Series, and 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 2007 and beyond. 51 offers everything from single-time press releases to full campaigns, website development and much more.
