Concord, NC – After months of anticipation, the brand new 51 Network has arrived. The subscription-based online television network is the first of its kind for pavement short track racing and brings fans of the sport closer to the action than ever before. Race highlights from all over the country, special features, on-board videos and a whole lot more can be viewed on the 51 Network starting now.
Race fans can subscribe to the Network for the cost of $7.99 per month or $59.99 for a 12 month subscription, a yearly savings of more than $30. To subscribe to the network, click here.
With a subscription to the 51 Network, race fans will receive unprecedented coverage of pavement short track racing that has never been available before. Each day moving forward, the staff at Speed51.com powered by JEGS will be adding more videos to the library making it so that you are never left wanting more.
Speed51.com owner Bob Dillner has thousands of hours of tapes and we’ll be airing that footage each Thursday in a special “Throwback Thursday” feature. The 51 team is also in the process of obtaining other archival footage from short track racing throughout America.
In addition to the on-track action, the 51 Network will be brining you behind-the-scenes coverage of drivers and race teams throughout North America. Sit-down interviews, shop visits and more in-depth features and full-length shows will be uploaded to the online television network on a regular basis.
“If a fan logs into the 51 Network each day, our goal is to have several videos that are new and fresh for them to watch overtime,” said Speed51.com owner Bob Dillner. “Between all of the highlight footage, on-board cameras, archives, interviews and features it will be the place for pavement short track fans to see all the racing action and a great way for promoters to promote their track and/or series.”
For many years, Speed51.com has partnered with DirtonDirt.com (Dirt Late Models) and TheCushion.com (Dirt Sprint Cars), who have been successful with a similar-style of delivery to that of the 51 Network. Now fans will have access to “On Demand” on the pavement racing scene as well.
“Fans want instant access a lot of times,” added Dillner. “We will be gathering this video and putting it up as fast as we possibly can from our great racing videographers and producers around the country. That way, if you are chillin’ on the couch or have a break at work, you can check out some cool racing or feature interviews with a tap of your finger on Speed51.com. Instead of just reading about it, now fans can watch it too.”
All the information, including news stories, written-features and 51’s patented Trackside Now live event coverage will remain free-of-charge, just as it has been since 2001. Only the 51 Network video portion of the site will be subscription-based.
Fans can subscribe to the network now and gain access to the full library of videos already assembled. That library will be added to on a daily basis. For more information or if you would like to contribute to the 51 Network, contact Bob Dillner at [email protected].
