Speed51.com powered JEGS continues to find ways to reaffirm itself as the 100% Short Track Racing news source. Its latest step in doing so is the recent acquisition of an office and television studio space in Concord, North Carolina to serve as the headquarters of Speed51.com, 51 TV and 51 Sports.
51’s new home base will play a huge role in the launch of the 51 Network at the end of this month as it will enable the 51 TV staff to be able to produce professional short track video content faster and easier than ever before. The new location will feature a television production studio, an editing suite and office space for six of 51’s core staff members.
“I’m really excited to be moving into our new office, as is my wife, Angie, and the whole 51 team,” said Speed51 founder and Executive Editor Bob Dillner. “With the launch of the 51 Network right around the corner it just seemed like the right time to do this. We really feel it will help with many things, and we hope that many drivers, team members and race fans will come stop by to say hello.”
“This is not only a great opportunity for our company to continue to grow, but also a chance for us to provide news and video content to our fans better than ever before,” said Speed51.com Executive Director Matt Kentfield. “I’ve been a part of this company for 10 years and I’ve never been more proud of the dedication of our staff, the equipment we have at our disposal and the support we have from our fans across the world. Our new location will only strengthen each of those qualities.”
The new 51 office and studio will also be a hub for Speed51.com’s news content as well as the home of the 51 Sports staff responsible for public relations, driver/team/series website creation and additional graphic design projects. Located just three miles from Charlotte Motor Speedway and within a few hours of some of the nation’s top short tracks, the office space is a central location of news, information and content for fans of all of the 51 multimedia ventures.
When in the Concord, North Carolina area, stop in to the 51 offices at 7168 Weddington Road, Suite 144. The location also has a full stock of Speed51.com merchandise for sale, including t-shirts, sweatshirts and more.
