SPEED51.COM ADDS SHORT TRACK MESSAGE BOARDS
Chat about ARCA, ASA, NASCAR, Pro Cup, SSS, Super LMs & Drivers
The fans spoke and Speed51.com listened.  Now the web's leading Short Track Racing website is introducing the Speed51.com Short Track Racing Message Boards.  The boards are designed to give Speed51.com's fans a one-stop shop to talk about everything Short Track Racing, from ASA to the Northeastern-based PASS Series to the Midwest's Sunoco Super Series to every NASCAR Touring division and beyond.
“Fans kept on asking us, 'Why don’t you have message boards?'  and to tell you the truth I was pretty hesitant.  Now I can’t believe we didn’t do it sooner,” said Speed51.com Editor and SPEED Channel Motorsports Broadcaster Bob Dillner.  “We’ve had them up on a trial basis for a couple of weeks and the response without even announcing it has been awesome; people really dig this stuff.”

Anyone can reach the message boards and read the posts, but fans must first register to be able to participate.  After completing a simple process, which includes entering a valid email address, fans will be able to discuss their thoughts on individual races, drivers and

anything in one of 22 different Short Track Series forums that are hosted on Speed51’s Short Track Racing Message Boards.

The Message Boards will also host the personal message boards of several of 51 Sports' website and short track public relations clients.  They will also be available from each of the driver’s websites that 51 creates and maintains.
“This is a place for anyone to talk some Short Track Racing smack,” added Dillner.  “It’s gotta be clean, but fans can talk about why this driver dumped this driver; why a particular series is doing something or simply how kickin’ a particular race was.  Fans get to meet other fans and everyone keeps informed about what’s going on in the short track world.  We are still looking for a sponsor for our boards, but we’re keeping them no matter what.  You’ll find me on them a bunch.”

The Short Track Racing Message Boards are just one of many additions to the Speed51.com site this year.  The Short Track Power Rankings presented by Oakley, RanderCar WebPoll, Five Star Late Model Roundup, Access ASA presented by CITGO/MDA and the Five Star Ticker are just some of the features that can be regularly
