MotorsportsLounge.com, the online community website which joins fans, drivers, series, teams and tracks together, has announced today a partnership with Racing Electronics, the #1 source for professional race communications worldwide, to become the Official Radio Communications Company of the discussion-based website.
"I am thrilled that Racing Electronics has come aboard with MotorsportsLounge.com," said Jason "Stix" Buckley, founder of the social networking site and owner of Stix Fx Entertainment. "I have been a big supporter of Racing Electronics and have used their equipment for years. It just makes sense to have the best in the racing communications partner up with the top official motorsports discussion forum hosting company online."
Drivers, teams, series officials, track owners and fans all use MotorsportsLounge.com to communicate online what happens at the tracks on a weekly basis. From the Legends Car ranks to NASCAR, NHRA and Open Wheel Racing, "ML" has caught the attention of many in motorsports, including Bruce Silver, owner of Racing Electronics.
"After learning about ML and reading, then commenting on a few topics, I decided RE needed to have a bigger involvement and support Jason’s efforts by being a sponsor of Motorsports Lounge," said Silver. "It’s a site I rely on."
Earlier this year, MotorsportsLounge.com launched a $51 forum hosting services special, where drivers, teams, tracks and series can have their official discussion forum housed at ML. The $51 price point, which is less than half the normal cost per year for official forum hosting, was set into place due to the association MotorsportsLounge.com has with 51 Sports and Speed51.com, the leader in online motorsports information by focusing on the asphalt short track realm.
MotorsportsLounge.com has hosted official discussion forums for drivers since 2001. From NASCAR's top-series drivers Reed Sorenson, Chad McCumbee, Mike Wallace and Joey Logano, to short track racers Trevor Bayne, George Brunnhoelzl, Donny Lia, Johanna Long and Devin Jones, drivers from all ranks of racing trust MotorsportsLounge.com to house their official discussion forums. Also, tracks like Havasu 95 Speedway (AZ) and Winchester Speedway (IN), series like the CRA Series, ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour and Southern Pro Late Model Series, as well as teams like Bill Elliott Driver Development and Fadden Racing have selected ML for their official discussion forum hosting service.
Now, with the partnership with Racing Electronics, ML and RE hope to help racers from across the world with communication at the track and online, as well as bringing the fans closer to the players in the sport.
"This year I have been using the Solo II One-Way Receiver by RE and the RE 3000 scanner at the track to see what is going on with the drivers and with race control," said Buckley. "I have also seen fans in the stands using Racing Electronics equipment to hear the action, and then when they are at home, post about what they heard on the radio on the MotorsportsLounge.com forums. With RE and ML, fans, as well as drivers, receive the complete communications circle from the track to the internet."
